On February 13, 2018 TechMoran reported that Easy Solar, a pay-as-you-go solar distribution company, has received undisclosed funding from Acumen Fund of the US and Gaia Impact Fund of France.
“According to Leslie Labruto, Global Energy Lead at Acumen, ‘We invested in Easy Solar because of the audacity of the team to impact one of the world’s poorest markets. Easy Solar’s funding team has the right recipe of grit, local knowledge, and intuition to become a top employer in the country and make an off-grid energy company work in Sierra Leone.’
‘We see our investment in Easy Solar as an opportunity to help scale an energy company servicing low-income customers and building a new clean economy in Sierra Leone,’ said Guilhem Dupuy, Investment Manager at Gaia Impact Fund. ‘We are excited to partner with Acumen in supporting entrepreneurs and companies committed to bring an end to energy poverty.’”
