“We develop innovations in technology that unlock more than just energy - we connect our customers to the wider world.”

Irfan Mirza



Trend Solar was founded in 2014 with a mission to bring next-generation solutions for off-grid users in developing countries.

It was founded by two British entrepreneurs, Irfan Mirza and Matt Tam, who share a vision of using technology to help people at the Bottom of the Pyramid empower their own lives.

Irfan Mirza, CEO and seasoned IT Consultant, has lived across East Africa and has direct experience of the divide opening between Africa’s urban dwellers and those at the Bottom of the Pyramid, who live in predominately rural areas and lack affordable access to electricity and the internet.

Headquartered in Tanzania, Trend Solar designs, distributes and finances a range of solar systems from 70Wh systems aimed at low-income households to 32Kw all-in one mini-grid systems.

At Trend Solar we know that access to energy is just the beginning of the journey for our customers which is why our product team develop innovations in technology that unlock more than just energy - we connect our customers to the wider world.
