About Fenix

Fenix International is a next-generation energy company. Our mission is to improve the quality of life of our customers through inclusive energy and financial services. To date, Fenix has sold over 400,000 Solar Home Systems across Africa, bringing clean, reliable power for lights, phones, radios, TV and much more to over 2 million people.

Our flagship product is the ReadyPay Solar Power System - one of the world’s most affordable and accessible sources of power to those living off-grid. Providing phone charging, lights, radios, and even TVs, ReadyPay is available from just $0.40 per-day and financed over 18-months via Mobile Money platforms. We pride ourselves on generating financing plans that are flexible, inclusive and affordable to ensure the greatest reach and impact.

In early 2018, Fenix joined forces with ENGIE, one of the world's largest energy companies and a leader in the move to renewable, decentralised and digital energy. This has allowed Fenix to make significant commercial investments to accelerate the path to our mission, via new markets - Benin, Côte d’Ivoire, Nigeria - and innovative products. Together, Fenix and ENGIE are making universal access to modern energy a reality.
