Off Grid Electric’s Aims, & How SolarCity & Off Grid Electric Got Connected (Video Interview)

Originally published on Sustainnovate.

Off Grid Electric is one of many small businesses bringing solar power and LED lighting to the developing world, but it has some unique approaches and advantages that I think helped it to win this year’s Zayed Future Energy Prize in the SME category. It also has the backing of well known companies like SolarCity and DBL Partners. I was interested in finding out more about the company’s background, corporate philosophy, and aims while interviewing CEO and co-founder Xavier Helgesen this week, right after Off Grid Electric won the Zayed Future Energy Prize. Check out Xavier’s responses in the video below.
