In 2020, Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME), and UNDP Cambodia worked with Okra Solar to deploy mesh-grids to 140 off-grid households across 3 villages. The remote monitoring technology, combined with digitalisation makes it a sustainable solution for last mile communities in the management, and operation of mini-grids; and powering productive applications.
We are thrilled to invest in and support Okra Solar as it’s rare to see an Australian company scale so successfully into many international markets so quickly. Okra Solar brings an impact multiplier that intersects and positively contributes towards energy access (SDG #7), better health outcomes (SDG#3), and gender outcomes (SDG#5). This is a great example of how an impact multiplier also drives scale with commercial outcomes, while solving the world’s GHG emissions and climate change problems.
Okra has given us a way to connect our least electrified customers in an affordable way, to achieve our mission of universal energy access in Kaduna.
