ZOLA Electric Tanzania Careers, Jobs Vacancies & Products

ZOLA Electric’s roots start in a trip co-founder Xavier Helgesen took in 2007 to Malawi. He ended up in a fishing village on the shores of Lake Malawi to a local family’s house for dinner. He learned that his hosts relied on dirty, expensive kerosene to light their homes. He began wondering why nobody he met had even a small solar power system.

Xavier attended Oxford University’s MBA program and set out researching exactly why solar adoption was so slow in places where it was needed most. At Oxford, he met future ZOLA co-founder Erica Mackey.

Erica had worked in Tanzania for a decade and deeply understood the African market. Joined by a renewable energy expert, Joshua Pierce, they worked together on a business plan that would allow customers to buy their own solar and storage power systems over time with the money they earn.

This approach could reduce upfront costs and the risk for the customer that the system would not perform as promised, aligning the company and the customer.

The founders moved to Tanzania in 2012 after working on the idea for a year at Oxford and raising seed funding, They launched a company, then called Off Grid Electric. The idea was not to build technology first, but instead to first understand customers’ needs and what they could afford. From those insights, the team could then develop technology that exactly fit customer demand.

Today, ZOLA is the leading solar brand in the markets it serves, offering a full energy ladder that can scale to solve any energy problem. ZOLA Electric has developed a unique design and engineering philosophy based on deep customer insights learned by powering more than 1 million lives.

Solar’s first wave focused on the developed world, where customers offset their utility bills with distributed systems. If generating your own power is cheaper and more reliable than buying it from the power grid, why wouldn’t you do it?
