Rural Spark's Solutions
Innovation designed from within the rural areas

CLIMBING THE ENERGY LADDER

The bigger picture
Providing rural villagers with the Rural Spark primarily provides them with a reliable access to clean, safe and sustainable energy. However, Rural Spark provides a bigger picture by connecting users, creating a network of villagers generating energy. Initially these links will be established through the exchange of Rural Spark cubes, over time evolving into wired connected users. Together we will develop the smartly distributed energy solution of tomorrow.
REVOLVING FINANCING, IMPACT AND PROFIt
A win, win, win
Users pay a monthly instalment to become owner of the Rural Spark energy Kit while still making profit with their micro-venture. Consequently the investment-amount of the energy kit (together with the costs of the financial product offered) will return in 18 to 24 months. Investing in Rural Spark Energy Kits thus is a revolving investment as new kits can be purchased from the returning instalments.
For distribution companies this means revolving profits, for funds running electrification programs this means your investment is continuously used for empowering rural villagers to electrify their villages. This initial financing will really be catalysing continuous development, providing reliable, sustainable energy (in stead of a temporary stand-alone solution).
