January - June 2019 Global Off-Grid Solar Market Report
The off-grid solar industry is growing and adapting to increased and more diverse demands from customers. Compared to the previous six months, solar home system sales with a capacity higher than 11 watt-peak, have increased by 40% to 680,000.
More customers choose the pay-as-you-go (PAYGo) business model to make use of the benefits of off-grid solar, with PAYGo sales surpassing 1 million lighting units for the first time.
In total, 4.11 million solar lanterns, multi-light and solar home systemswere sold from January to June 2019, while 730,000 off-grid solar appliances were sold.
The report also highlights the life-changing impact of off-grid solar, with the cumulative number of people who have benefitted from improved electricity access reaching 280 million (since July 2010).
The impact figures are based on the sales numbers of off-grid solar lighting products only (solar lanterns, multi-light systems and solar home systems).
