About Sun King

Sun King is the world’s largest off-grid solar energy company with cutting-edge product design, pioneering fintech and a grassroots installation model that provides energy to the 1.8 billion consumers across Africa and Asia who lack access to reliable electricity. Founded in 2007, Sun King sets the gold standard for off-grid solar performance and design as part of its mission: powering access to brighter lives.
Sun King’s 2,500+ staff and 23,000 field agents serve 100 million product users based in 65 countries around the world. With direct-to-consumer sales active in 11 countries, Sun King is growing rapidly. Every month, we equip 330,000 homes and businesses with power and light.
The needs of energy consumers in Africa and Asia are diverse. From cost-effective and durable lamps to powerful home and business energy systems as well as modern entertainment and energy storage systems, Sun King’s broad array of products unlock a higher quality of life. Whether devising safe and environmentally friendly electric-powered cookers or exploring the future of pay-as-you-go mobility and vehicles in Africa to concocting ever-more-powerful solar energy solutions, Sun King’s technology team nurtures and devises scalable, inventive solutions to pressing global challenges.
Sun King’s innovative pay-as-you-go financing model dismantles the upfront cost burden that blocks low-income households from transitioning from polluting and harmful kerosene fuels and gas generators to clean, affordable and green solar energy. Sun King customers can purchase products using the company’s technology-enabled, pay-as-you-go “Easy Buy” financing service, which breaks payments down into regular, affordable instalments. These payments can be made via mobile money for as little as $0.15 a day. After one to two years of payments, customers own their solar equipment outright.
Though united by a commitment to serving underserved off-grid families, Sun King comprises a broad, inclusive group of individuals working across 11 countries. Sun King’s world-class roster of product designers, data scientists, logistics experts, customer service professionals, operations gurus and marketing and communications strategists work together to devise solutions to the complicated and multidimensional challenges of energy access, climate action and social inclusion.
