Greenlight Planet Expands Energy Access in Emerging Markets With OPIC Support

July.22.2016

An Orrick team recently closed a financing from the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, the development arm of the U.S. government, for our social enterprise client, Greenlight Planet. 

Greenlight Planet is a leader in providing high-quality, affordable solar lighting and phone charging devices to populations living off the electric grid in emerging markets throughout Asia, Africa and Latin America. The company’s social impact is truly impressive, having already sold more than 3 million solar lights in India and Africa alone.  

With this OPIC growth financing, Greenlight Planet will expand its global distribution network in Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia.
