We are Spark, and we're here to power tomorrow.
We connect millions of people in emerging markets to solar power. We promise the highest level of customer satisfaction, and we deliver on that promise. Our modular systems are carefree and help you grow in life and work, no matter where you live,our grid allows even the smallest community to become energy resilient.


Solar-powered lives are future-proof lives. We deliver smart and simple solutions that are owned and operated by the people who need them most. While we work behind the scenes to build the energy network of the future, we empower emerging markets to take control of their energy needs with systems that are smartly distributed, viable and sustainable. This means that life doesn’t stop when the sun sets. Power your future with our plug & play solar kits and let tomorrow be a bright day.


We enable surplus energy to be shared between households. This is our vision for collaborative community energy networks. Early solar adopters in a community can inspire other households, and build the movement with us. We want to connect network providers rather than build the energy grids itself. Our goal is to connect villages and cities to each other, and build an energy sharing platform. Grids built with Spark tools are a co-operative alternative to the top-down energy grids.
