Devergy is a social energy utility, which provides an affordable and reliable electrical service to low-income people not connected to the power grid.
The service is based on a plug-and-play village-sized energy micro grid which provides solar power to households and businesses; it allows the users to connect lights and appliances such as radios, TVs and refrigerators.
The key feature of the system is energy meter that powers the household with a pay- per-use approach, where each user tops up his credit by buying a scratch-off card and sending an SMS obtaining a credit code to the devergy payment system.
