ecoligo GmbH

Ecoligo is a solar utility that provides low-cost solar energy to local businesses in developing countries. Projects are financed through an investing platform, where ecoligo offers attractive and tangible projects with a fixed interest rate to private investors. Investments in the projects on ecoligo’s platform are not only profitable, but also support economic development and reduce CO2 emissions.

The need

Local businesses in developing countries face high electricity costs and lack a stable power supply. Solar energy systems are the solution to these issues. However, due to the situation in these countries, they don’t have access to finance for these.

The solution

Ecoligo provides low cost solar energy to local businesses, saving them up to 40% on their energy costs. By financing the projects via its crowdinvesting platform, ecoligo closes the finance gap while providing attractive returns to private investors.

The value proposition

Ecoligo can offer solar energy at a lower rate than local and international solar power providers. Furthermore, by operating the projects, ecoligo can manage risks much more effectively than other crowdinvesting platforms with similar projects, who have no involvement in their implementation.
