BusinessGreen Leaders Awards Shortlists Eight19 For Two Accolades

Posted on April 16, 2012 @ 10:00 am

Eight19 has been selected as a finalist in the categories “Small Business of the Year” and “Renewable Energy Project of the Year” of the BusinessGreen Leaders Awards, for its work on the IndiGo pay-as-you-go solar system, which provides clean and affordable electricity to off-grid rural communities.

Eight19’s technology has fulfilled the requirements of both awards by its commitment to the overarching judging criteria of “innovation and applicability.” The solar as a service business model removes the traditionally prohibitive high upfront costs of solar, improving energy access through a proven and sustainable business solution. First deployed in Kenya six months ago, IndiGo is now having a transformative impact on the lives of families in Zambia, Malawi and, most recently, the world’s youngest country, South Sudan.

"We are honoured to be named as finalists for both the ‘Renewable Energy Project of the Year’ and ‘Small Business of the Year’ by the judges of the BusinessGreen Leaders Awards,” said Simon Bransfield-Garth, Eight19’s CEO. “Eight19's IndiGo pay-as-you-go solar is helping make renewable power affordable in some of the poorest areas of Africa, and it’s a privilege to be recognized in this way."
