Solar Power on your side
DEPUTY COUNTRY MANAGER – Lusaka Zambia
We from MPower Ventures, a pan-African venture backed start-up in the energy access area (www.mpower.africa), have launched our operations in Zambia in 2019. Since then, together with our partners, we have already supplied thousands of customers with our solar systems. Our products range from small solar lamps to solar home systems with matching appliances such as TVs, fans and refrigerators to large systems for SMEs. Our portfolio has recently been complemented with electric powered vehicles, making us one of the most innovative solar system providers in Zambia.

You will support the team and our partners to generate leads and convert them into successful sales;
