Mission Statement Mission Statement EnerGenius is focused on providing villagers in emerging markets with a cost effective, reliable, and efficient means of siphoning energy from the local power grid. Our goal is to develop an affordable energy plan that allows villagers to purchase and adapt to energy at their own rate.
Our Audience makes 88-120 US dollars yearly and chooses not to pay for electricity even if the main grid is accessible to their village. Due to their low income, the current price/cost model for electricity forces them to purchase a less effective, more hazardous form of energy and prevents them from assimilating to this useful resource.
300 million Indians don’t have energy
Millions more in the country of 1.2 billion people don’t get adequate energy
High Upfront Costs
Users pay for monthly/yearly billing cycle
Which leads people to use Kerosene for energy instead of Electricity.
Low Reliability on the Grid
2. Power Outages: Unpredictable Use of Grid/Electricity
About 30% of energy produced is wasted in India.
Allows customers to purchase electricity when they most need it
Customers pay for electricity via SMS to an automated Distributor system
Cost of electricity during purchase is determined by demand in village
Distributors able to provide reliable energy to consumer due to documented needs
