Introduction to Rise

Power Control Limited (PCL), an established business in Dar es Salaam created a division called RISE, that will supply both domestic and productive solar systems to small holder farmers in Tanzania. RISE is currently funded by PCL and aims to become a fully incorporated business by Q2 2017.
Sustainable Energy for All, the initiative launched by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and co-led by World Bank President Jim Kim, has as one of its three goals for 2030, to ensure universal access to modern energy services. Part of the goal to provide universal access to energy will be partly met by utilities through electrification, but a large part of this goal will be met by the private sector through the creation of mini-grid companies and the supply of SHS and Lanterns to off-grid customers.

The RISE philosophy is that true economic growth will depend on both productive solar solutions for small businesses and domestic households.

Access to Modern Energy Services

In Tanzania access to electricity is estimated at 24% nationally, and only 11% in rural areas. Access to modern energy services is vital to agricultural productivity, income generation and education.

Sustainable Energy for All

RISE develops solutions that are more economical than utility expansion by working alongside communities to develop relevant and sustainable solar products for household and productive use which will enable the creation of rural entrepreneurs.

Clean Energy

Solar provides a clean alternative to smokey and dangerous candles and Kerosene.

Accessible Development

Tanzania has a population of over 51 million people, 2/3 of whom are under 24 years old and live in rural areas. The majority of the population in the rural areas are directly or indirectly involved in farming.

This represents a huge, fast growing and under-served market that will be looking for products and solutions that are sustainable and accessible. Of the 14 million farmers in Tanzania, 91% of these farmers are small holder farmers that farm in close proximity to each other.
