Solar PV Microgrids: TCASH mobile money integration and device leasing pilot for electrification of rural areas in Sumba
Electric Vine Industries (EVI) is partnering with Telkomsel to integrate TCASH, a mobile money service, into EVI’s power metering payment platform facilitated by TCASH payment collection agents in rural communities. EVI will also launch a device leasing program to increase user ability to manage and purchase electricity on demand through the EVI Wallet. The pilot will provide a sustainable energy access with the opportunity for income generation to many un-electrified Indonesians.
