Yellow, a leading PayGo solar startup in Africa, has secured $14 million in Series B funding to scale across Africa.

Convergence Partners led the funding round with participation from the Energy Entrepreneurs Growth Fund, managed by Triple Jump, and follow-on investment from Platform Capital Investment Partners. Founded in 2018, Yellow offers affordable and accessible solar energy solutions to off-grid households in Africa.

 

The company’s PayGo model enables customers to pay for solar energy products in installments, making clean energy solutions more affordable for low-income households. Yellow’s innovative approach has garnered recognition and support from various organizations, including the United Nations Development Programme and the World Bank.

The $14 million funding round will allow the startup to accelerate its expansion plans and increase its market penetration across the continent.
