Pay As You Go

This project is implemented by Yayasan Kopernik on behalf of our partner who provided grant funding for this project.

We are introducing a pay-as-you-go financing system to connect last mile communities in Kupang, East Nusa Tenggara to sustainable lighting sources. 

Project Type

  • Technology Distribution

THE PROBLEM

Some areas in Kupang, East Nusa Tenggara do not yet have access to proper and reliable lighting. Therefore, communities usually use kerosene lamps as a lighting source, which can be quite costly and can also damage health especially the respiratory systems.

While alternative energy sources such as solar lights can be beneficial, most families do not have sufficient purchasing power to buy solar home system or SHS technology as the price is quite expensive.

THE SOLUTION

By introducing the pay-as-you-go or PAYGO system, communities in the last mile are able to access alternative energy sources such as solar home system technology in an affordable or sustainable way, In addition, the system could support communities in practicing healthy financial habits such as financial planning and budget saving.

THE EXPECTED IMPACT

The PAYGO system will increase people’s access to solar home system in their households, providing them with a sustainable and reliable lighting source that can support their daily activities.
