Bboxx and EDF Togo is a next generation utility dedicated to transforming lives and unlocking potential through access to energy.
We have been operating in Togo since 2017, after being awarded a tender to install solar home systems across the country, largely in rural areas. In 2018, Bboxx and EDF entered a partnership, a joint venture, with EDF holding a 50% stake in Bboxx’s Togo operations, operating as the brand “Bboxx avec EDF” in Togo – accelerating investment and deployment of off-grid electricity.In 2019, Bboxx avec EDF customers in Togo receive a subsidy to spend on solar energy – which is the first even government subsidy for the purpose of solar energy payments in Africa. This forms part of the Togo Government’s national electrification strategy, the “CIZO” initiative – which means lighting up in the local “Guin” language.
Today, we have positively impacted over 100,000 Togolese by providing clean, reliable and affordable electricity to their homes, communities and businesses for the first time.
