Greenlight Planet is a for-profit social business thatdesigns, distributes, and finances solar home energy with an under-served populationin mind: the 1.2 billion global consumers for whom the old-fashioned electricalgrid is unavailable or too expensive. Since its founding in 2009, thecompany has become a leading global provider of solar-energy products to over60 million rural consumers in more than 65countries.
From its wide range of trusted Sun King™ solar lamps andhome energy systems, to its innovative distribution partnerships, to itsflexible EasyBuy™ pay-as-you-go financing model, Greenlight Planet continuouslystrives to meet the evolving needs of the off-grid market.
A truly global enterprise, Greenlight Planet has11offices in countries throughout Africa and India, and over 1,200 employeesaround the world. Its team of more than 5,500 sales agents keeps thecompany directly in touch with rural consumers’ needs. But Greenlight workswith a vast international network of 300 distribution partners, from largemicro-finance institutions to local micro-entrepreneurs, expanding the reach ofsolar energy products. With over ten years of experience, GreenlightPlanet is determined to continue setting the gold standard for performance anddesign, while powering human potential.
Greenlight Planet was founded by T. Patrick Walsh, aUniversity of Illinois student who spent part of 2005 working with the charityEngineers Without Borders in rural India. He realized that villagersthere, users of ubiquitous kerosene lamps, were not asking forcharity. Rather, they were savvy consumers demanding a better product tolight their homes. With classmates from school, Patrick designed andsold Greenlight’s first solar-lantern prototypes in 2006 in the state ofOrissa: brighter and healthier than kerosene lamps, but affordable enough sothat people could afford them without subsidies. In 2007,co-foundersMayank Sekhsaria and Anish Thakkar joined the fledgling company. Thefounders moved to India and China in 2008, with the vision that smartdesign, efficient engineering and innovative distribution strategies could makedirty kerosene lanterns a thing of the past.
Over a decade, the company has grown steadily,expanding distribution across South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa, andestablishing financing programs to make solar energy affordable: not onlyover the long term, but immediately, even for consumers with limited savings.
As solar technology and battery technology became moreefficient over the years, Greenlight Planet began setting its sightshigher, beyond simply replacing kerosene lamps: The company’s solar homesystems now reduce demand for grid electricity, powering not only lights,but a range of home appliances including mobile phones, televisions, fans, andmore.
