NXT Grid is a mini-grid developer program designed to accelerate the development of clean mini-grids.
With NXT Grid, solar mini-grids are finally easy. We help bringing your new mini-grid to life, by supporting your company from concept to operation. We conduct rigorous, data-driven site quality assessment, grid design and equipment selection optimised for scalability and profitability. We believe in mini-grids everywhere, and want you to be part of that vision.
After almost ten years building and operating solar mini-grids in rural Sub-Saharian Africa, we decided to share our knowledge and expertise with other companies to speed up universal energy access and maximize our impact on local economic development.
The NXT Grid platform makes it possible for a non-engineer to run their own local utility and be profitable in their endeavour. We automate load control, and many other operational processes, leading to an exceptionally high portion of the kWh produced being sold. Our Developers get full access to our knowledge and support, to make sure each mini-grid is a profitable success.
Financing a solar mini-grid is challenging, takes time and effort. Our developers automatically access the NXT Grid Rental Program, covering the equipment of all their eligible projects.
You only need complete the due diligence once, as part of our onboarding process, then you can start submitting project proposals and quickly confirm if they are eligible for the standardised rental terms. Mini-grids should be easy, and so should be their financing.
