The rapid growth of pay-as-you-go (PAYG) solar has been enabled by mobile money and mobile connectivity that allows customers to pay by instalments, and companies to remotely control and monitor the solar home systems (SHS). And in turn, the PAYG solar industry has helped to drive the adoption and use of mobile money, by giving customers a regular and essential use case, and ensuring they have a convenient and safe power source to charge their phones.

This research by GSMA focuses on the African continent where most of the mobile money enabled PAYG solar units have been deployed.
