Bboxx, a next-generation utility, has launched Flexx by Bboxx, a new brand offering entry-level clean energy products to millions of people at the bottom of the energy pyramid
Flexx by Bboxx will bring new and reliable products to market that are affordable, accessible, and flexible, getting millions more people onto the energy ladder.
As part of the launch, Bboxx announced two new clean energy products that will add to their existing roster of clean energy, clean cooking, mobile technology, and accessible finance solutions:
Flexx10 is an affordable ‘plug and play’ portable solar lantern, designed for rural customers and those who are mobile. The product is also capable of charging mobile phones. Flexx10 is an upfront cash sales product.
Both new products are designed to minimise lifetime costs and include features that reduce maintenance and service requirements. The products will have a significant impact on the lives of those they support, be that allowing a child to study at home, allowing a vendor to continue trading after dark or allowing remote communities to stay connected by charging their devices.
Till now, Bboxx has successfully delivered clean energy solutions for more than two million people globally, with substantial operations in countries including Rwanda, Kenya, Togo, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Many of these products are aimed at the top 25% of rural communities. The introduction of Flexx will enable Bboxx to reach the other 75%.
Flexx by Bboxx will be first launched in Rwanda and Kenya before expanding to other Bboxx markets in subsequent months including in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
