Our mission & values

We envision a world where all people have access to clean, reliable and affordable electricity. In order to get there, we focus on our core value of opportunity: the opportunity for under-served communities to be free and empowered. Our mission is to increase access to electricity in under-served communities - it is electricity and the services derived from it that unlock and create those opportunities. 

SparkMeter seeks to increase energy access and energy quality across the world.  Our technology transforms utilities from enterprises with unreliable operations, negative cash flow, and credit unworthiness to enterprises that are sustainable, provide high quality of service and can take on outside investment to continue their operations and connect new users to their grids. In turn, utilities can provide reliable power to their customers, increase electricity access and invest in renewable energy and energy efficiency in their systems.

We operate on these values:

Be a pioneer
Listen to understand
Act together
Grow capability
Take responsibility

We believe technology can rapidly expand energy access in emerging markets and make the world a more equitable place
