Company Summary

GCP Solar is a distribution company for solar lights in Africa. GCP Solar's strategy is to work with large distribution partners, such as Governments and telecoms companies to facilitate distribution to retail consumers. Our customers are those off-grid that use kerosene and candles as their main source of lighting, as well as those who are connected to the grid. Solar lights save money on fossil fuels and are better for the environment.
