Husk Power First to Surpass 200 Minigrids Across Asia, Africa

By Isaac Anyaogu

Husk Power has become the first company to own and operate more than 200 community solar minigrids in Asia and Africa, a benchmark that has erased two hurdles to the minigrid industry: economies of scale and speed of deployment.

The company also said that it averaged a rollout of 16 minigrids per month, following its announcement in January 2023 that it had become the first minigrid company to achieve corporate profitability.
