tackling the access challenge

for clean energy systems

one household at a time

About Frontier Markets

The Problem

Millions of people do not have reliable electricity in their homes. They rely on traditional fuels like kerosene when it gets dark. Kerosene kills millions of people each year; either by the respiratory diseases from the smoke or fires caused by a fallen lantern. Half of these deaths are children under the age of five.

The Solution

Solar lights offer safety from kerosene fumes and fires. They are a cheap, sustainable way to use free energy from the sun to light a home. With efficient distribution and superior service, we hope to light the lives of 10 million households in five years.

Our Promise

At FM, we believe that each and every household deserves access to goods and services that will enhance their health, wealth, and productivity. We are a for-profit business with a social mission: to eradicate deadly killers like kerosene and ensure a more energy-equitable future for millions of BOP households. Our brand is based on customer trust—unless rural households can rely on us for dedicated service, education, and continued local presence, they will go back to using dangerous forms of energy.
