MeshPower is an energy company based in Rwanda to reach off-grid communities with sustainable power at an affordable rate. The company was founded in 2012 and partners with Xpower to produce microgrids that provide electricity to cities.

MeshPower targets the rural communities and deliver by setting up solar panels that are linked to a battery storage unit usually at the centre of a village; called the base station. The base station is generally at a customer’s house who keeps it safe and in return, receives electricity for free.


Electricity is made available via aerial cables attached up to 200 metres away, to offices, homes and businesses with individual MeshPower units attached to their walls. Customers pay for this service on a pay-as-you-go basis. They either pay through voucher sales, or cash according to how much electricity they need. Interested customers can follow their progress via their Facebook and Twitter pages. This is excellent news for the rural communities in Rwanda as MeshPower makes electricity available to them at an affordable rate.
