With this association of expertise, we can now unleash a whole new dimension of impact through PAYG technologies: facilitating a greater access to productive use of energy for farmers, large power capacity for households or even enhanced health care conditions at remote dispensaries for instance” says Thibault Lesueur, Co-Founder of Solaris Offgrid.

From today onward, operators all across developing countries are offered the ability to use a broad range of pure sinus inverter and MPPT charge controller from Victron Energy that are compatible with the Solaris PAYG platform.
