Their early experiences can be found here: www. sharedsolar.org . The main issue found was the development of smart metering and load control , and tariff collection through mobile money (where infrastructure exist) and/or local digital selling points ( which is independent of telecom coverage).

Private investors have taken the technology developed to scale it commercially through a company called Sustainable Economy Solutions (SES) [www.sespbc.com]. SES is a Public Benefit Corporation acting as ESCO or EPC in different countries depending of the policy. Their first project is being rolled out in Tanzania.
