LightBe Global (LBG) is a PAYGo Solar company providing reliable, affordable and environmental solar solutions for off-grid areas. We commit ourselves to improve the life of people who lack electricity.
In Nigeria alone, over 100 million people don’t have regular access to electricity.
“Our number one competitor here is a diesel generator, but we’re offering much cleaner and safer value at a better cost.”
Already Relatively Small Solar Systems Can Actually Replace Generators
Access to Energy Initiative, a non-profit research company studying the size of solar systems necessary to replace generators in Nigeria, found that 93% of all generators could be replaced with 500w solar systems and energy efficient LED light bulbs.
LightBe Global provides these systems and others that can reduce costs and provide clean and safe energy for homes and small businesses throughout Nigeria.
Fuel Generators, Not Only Dirty And Loud But Also Expensive
According to A2EI data, on average, customers are spending over $47 USD per month, just for fuel. Over a two year period, this amounts to over $1,100 USD (this does not include generator maintenance or purchase price).

Economically Vital MSMEs
Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) are a vital part of the Nigerian economy as they contribute over fifty percent of the Nation’s GDP. Reliable electricity from solar-PV systems is significant in increasing the productivity and income of small businesses in Nigeria.
