Qotto develops and distributes autonomous solar kits to supply electricity to isolated populations in Benin and Burkina Faso. The kits take advantage of the abundant solar energy in the region in order to light up rural communities not otherwise connected to an electricity supply.

The Qotto Light kit includes a solar panel, battery, four lamp sockets and USB ports for charging phones. The Qotto TV kit also adds a television socket.

The subscription includes installation and maintenance, and is prepaid via mobile money. Customers commit to a three-year subscription after which they own the kit outright. Qotto kits produce green energy and replace other more polluting sources including candles, kerosene lamps, disposable batteries, generators etc.
