Tundra Solar Energy

What is the specific problem you are addressing?

The issue of access to electricity to those without means or proximity to a large grid is a plight experience by millions on the African continent. Tundra has spent 3 years developing an African focused solution to bring power to these rural communities. The flick of a light switch is taken for granted by billions, but for others access to electricity and lighting is life changing - this is the problem we seek to address.

What is your offering and how does it transform/disrupt the energy sector?

Our product harnesses solar power into a micro grid storage solution for a home and then provides lighting and basic charging to rural communities. This itself is not disruptive but the fact that we combine this technology with intelligence into the product and access to usage data provides insight into the real consumption of power needs of the most rural areas. Our access through a support distribution model, real people servicing real communities with an African tough product is what sets us apart. Soon we will incorporate miniaturised water from air technology that will provide fresh, drinkable water along with local, consumable power.

What is the underlying technology that you are using?

Solar, batteries, microprocessing and software.

What are the partnerships that you are seeking?

We are looking for partners to help drive our channel into the rural communities. This is where real access to our solution is embraced and it requires awareness, partners with a vision and passion to change the world.
