Off Grid Systems Ltd is a technical organization that specializes in the development of small commercial-scale infrastructure projects, principally for religious/charitable organizations that operate education and health care facilities in rural areas of the Democratic Republic of Congo

Early work included the development of photovoltaic projects in Nigeria, but the extreme lack of development of much of the DRC drew us into a longer-term presence in the country.

A great irony of the DRC is that in spite of its extreme wealth in natural resources, the majority of the population hovers near last place on the global economic scale.


With the global economic demand for strategic minerals, the DRC occupies an increasingly prominent geopolitical and economic position.


Off Grid focuses on the development of electrical power and water projects for clients that have a long-term fixed presence in a specific region.


As such, we are not involved in crisis management, but look to develop durable basic infrastructure for clients who operate in very poor, remote areas, but require such amenities in order to serve their own constituents.


Over many years we have come to understand the specific characteristics that successful project development requires in this extremely problematic, but highly interesting society.
