So, without a doubt, this is one of the fabulous startups in the current situation, which is working on the welfare of unprivileged people. Here we are going to brief their extraordinary journey ahead in this article. Happy reading!
Initial Stage of SOLshare
Sebastian Groh and Daniel Ciganovic founded This Dhaka based startup in 2015. SOLshare is A great solar companyin Bangladesh, which is working against the most prominent problem which our country is facing now.
When this startup was founded, our government launched a program to double the number of users who are receiving the service of SHS. The mission was to make the number 3 million to 6 million.
Only using a local microgrid Solshare service accepts us to produce, share, consume, and earn via Electricity. Solar panels are mainly generating Electricity using sunlight, which is environment friendly and far better than using a generator, kerosene lamps.
However, the current economic policy of SOLshare is based on selling their solutions, connectivity equipment for their SOLcontrol and SOLbox. This startup holds a vision that they will set up more than 10,000 nanogrids before 2023 and the aim is to reach more than 1 million users.
How SOLshare Fixing our Basic Need for Electricity
Bangladesh is an overpopulated country that has 160+ million population and the number of households is 29+ million. From the international finance corporation, we came to know that our electrification rate is 41%, where more than 17 million households don’t have Electricity.
However, many people from our county live in rural areas and they face this problem regularly because the electrification rate is 28% here. So many of them try to use the solar system to get rid of this problem, but the problem is the individual solar system can not afford many devices that consume colossal Electricity.
So, fixing this problem, this startup company provides us, peer, to peer electricity that means the mainline is interconnected with the local trading network of households even without a solar home system.
When you connect it with the local trading network, the individual solar utility also increases by up to 30%. For that, more people can access the same structure and can enjoy the electrical service at a low cost.
Earn Through SOLshare
There is a great chance of earning people who are using solar panel in Bangladesh through the nanogrid system. SOLshare opens up a superb business deal for the household owners. It is an ample opportunity for them to upgrade their solar Electricity and earn profit through it.
However, a simple householder with a solar panel can be a smart entrepreneur overnight when their solar system starts to produce surplus energy. The surplus electricity is also credited to their mobile phone accounts that they are able to know how much power they are able to share with others. For this business model, SOLshare is recognized as an “Uber” of non-electric or off-grid areas.
Moreover, the essential thing for the SOLshare trading network is back-end ICT-enabled data management, which enables the user to share their extra Electricity and allows mobile money infrastructure for remote payment. So this is undoubtedly a revolutionary idea to enrich the use of solar energy in Bangladesh.
