“The amount one pays, determines how long one can access the power. For example, on the most affordable kit, a payment of Shs 1,000 will provide power for a day, whilst a larger payment of Shs 30,000 will provide power for a month”, said MTN Chief Marketing Officer, Ernst Fonternel.

Fonternel also observed that the product was initially launched in Lira on November 18, with great success and is set to roll out nationwide early next year.

Talking about the key benefits of the product, Fonternel said: “The ReadyPay Power System provides bright, safe, reliable lighting without the risk of using kerosene lamps, and secure phone charging without leaving your own home. It’s easy to set-up, no technician is needed, and comes with an 18 months warranty. This is all thanks to MTN Mobile Money which means customers can make small, affordable payments until they own the system.”

ReadyPay is a multifunctional Solar Power System which includes a solar panel, battery pack featuring two USB ports and two car lighter adapter ports plus a range of lights and phone charging accessories.

Larger kits include radio or TV accessories and additional accessories like hair clippers or torches are sold separately.
