Rural Spark & Vayam Renewable
set out to reach over 750.000 people by the end of 2016
SCALING TO 10.000 KITS IN 2016
Rural Spark worked together with Basix Group India for more than two years now. Vayam Renewable, a new company of the Basix Group, aims to provide a large range of energy products to more than 10.000 villages in Rural India.
Last Spring 2015, Rural Spark and Vayam Renewable signed an MoU detailing the commitment to locally producing and distributing 10.000 Rural Spark Kits that will bring clean energy to some of the most remote areas of India and in the process contributing to a stronger local economy.
By the end of 2015, we aim to roll-out the first 150 Rural Spark Energy Kits together with Vayam Renewable. We will develop a clear distribution plan and reflect on how the products are received. Furthermore, Vayam Renewable will make use of Rural Spark’s service and retail platform. This platform allows Vayam to monitor the payments of the customers.
In 2016, we will roll-out batches of 2500 energy kits. Together with the network of Vayam Renewable that is already established, we will reach more then 750.000 people by the end of 2016 with access to clean, safe and sustainable energy.
