  • Green Impact Technologies (GIT) and Amped Innovation have announced a partnership to scale over 15,000 solar home systems across Malawi this year as part of the Ngwee Ngwee Ngwee Fund “NNNF.”
  • Through this partnership, GIT aims to grow its solar workforce and provide households with reliable access to Amped Innovation’s trusted solar lighting, phone charging, and radio kits. 
With funding from the World Bank, the Malawi Off-Grid Market Development Fund (OGMDF), or the Ngwee Ngwee Ngwee Fund (NNNF), aims to drive the urgent provision of energy access and scale up the off-grid solar market in Malawi. This fund consists of a USD 6 million Results Based Financing (RBF) Grant window and a USD 14M debt window for off-grid solar companies to provide access to at least 200,000 new households in Malawi by June 2024.
The Malawi Electricity Access Project kicked off with a ceremonial contract signing event chaired by Engineer Alfonso Chikuni, Secretary of Energy and esteemed development partners, and World Bank Group officials. This landmark initiative, led by the Ministry of Energy, aims to illuminate rural, low-income, off-grid communities across Malawi.  

“We’re honored to contribute to Malawi’s solar energy economy and bring new energy access to communities in need,” said Green Impact Technologies CEO, Admore Chiumia. “There is growing demand for reliable and cost-efficient high-performance solar-powered systems, which is why we partnered with Amped Innovation to bring the technology to market.”

Green Impact Technologies is a locally owned and run last-mile PAYGO solar product distribution company. Recently, GIT recruited over 200 new sales agents, demonstrating its commitment to local job creation and increasing access to clean energy in support of the Malawi government’s agenda for sustainable economic growth. Amped Innovation Customer Success Lead, Mamour Seck led a 3-day product training in Malawi.
