    Powerhive was started in 2011 with a mission to electrify the 1.5 Billion people on the planet without electricity.

    To achieve this end, Powerhive has developed a technology and business platform and business processes that provide access to electricity and information via wifi enabled solar micro-grids. We currently serve over a thousand residential and business customers in emerging markets.

    Powerhive's micro-grid management and billing platform captures rich usage and payment data from its customers who pre-pay for their electricity via their mobile phones. This real-time data allows Powerhive to automatically monitor system performance, analyze customer usage, manage payments and communications with our customers. Our data driven approach provides a powerful framework with which to unlock the massive and untapped energy access market.

    Our team shares this vision and we are looking for others that want to apply their skills, passion and creativity to create the worlds best energy management platform.
