gnuGrid Africa LTD Driving energy inclusion and transition through data
Hi, my name is David Opio. I am the CEO and Co-founder of gnuGrid Africa, which is a cleantech startup that is driving energy inclusion and transition through data.
Our flagship product is solarsentra which is a pay-go solution, including payments and customer management, combined with unique hardware components. The PayGo solution meets the needs of solar system providers in Uganda for operationalizing their sales, delivery, remote solar system monitoring, active predictive maintenance and payments on a high availability infrastructure. The hardware is a circuit board designed to monitor for tampering, monitor solar system performance and energy usage and to provide the unlock /lock mechanism standard in PayGo solutions.
With data on payments and relationships with microgrid developers and other PayGo models (using our system or not), we can generate better market insights and intelligence and the necessary Machine Learning models. We are currently working with 10 solars.
