About Us

This is what we are.

GreenWize Energy Limited is an innovative and fast growing for profit energy social enterprise based in Sub Saharan Africa. It was founded by Kenyan Engineers, Evans Wadongo and Edwin Keverenge. GreenWize Energy is incorporated in Kenya. GreenWize seeks to introduce innovative green energy products and solutions that beat competitors in the African market on originality, pricing, reliability in performance, ease of use, customization, and excellent support services. This for-profit venture builds upon the successful non-profit social entrepreneurship venture being implemented by Sustainable Development for All (SDfA), founded by Evans Wadongo. SDfA has over the last 4 years worked on two pillars: (1) providing lighting to rural very low-income households without access to grid electricity through a technology that is reliable in performance, affordable, user friendly and environmentally safe. (2) enabling user households to start income generating projects by using savings realized from cutting or eliminating on everyday purchase of fossil fuels (kerosene), which would have otherwise been used to power their kerosene lamps. However, the sustainability to date of the SDfA has in part been dependent on grants. It is for this reason that GreenWize was created and parts of the proceeds generated from the company are donated towards supporting SDfA’s philanthropic objectives.

Our Mission.

The mission of Greenwize Energy is to create innovative African designed renewable energy products and solutions that reduce pollution, improve energy efficiency, and reduce dependence on fossil fuels while yielding health, environmental and economic improvements. We are dedicated to being industry leaders in innovation, technology and customer service.
