To date, Fenix has sold over 150,000 ReadyPay Power systems in Uganda, bringing clean, reliable power for lights, phones, radios, TV and much more to over 900,000 people in Uganda.  In 2017, Fenix announced that it was joining forces with ENGIE, one of the world's largest energy companies and a leader in the move to renewable, decentralised and digital energy.  ENGIE will make significant commercial investments in Fenix to accelerate the path to our mission.
