Building a Pay-As-You-Go Off-Grid Solar Market in India

The Lighting Asia/India program, along with the Global Off-Grid Lighting Association (GOGLA) and GSM Association, co-hosted a Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) Solar focused event in Mumbai on 6 December.

The event brought together many stakeholders of the PAYG ecosystem, including PAYG and distribution companies, mobile network operators, digital finance solutions providers, and potential investors. Participants shared experiences from PAYG solar energy markets in other countries and discussed opportunities and challenges in developing a sustainable PAYG market in India.

Rajeev Palakshappa from the Lighting Asia/India team moderated a panel session ‘PAYG in India: opportunities, challenges and experiences’.
