Lean Phase: UVP

Assumption: Locals in Jumtha and Vengara are willing to pay for an alternative solution to energy that is more reliable and affordable.

 

Results:

Channel: Jumtha and Vengara

21 Individuals were engaged with in Jumtha, Vengara and Keisala.

 

Of the 18 that we through the survey with, 18 agreed with the statement of feeling frustrated because of unreliable and unaffordable energy solutions and provided us with the $1 to guarantee early access to the energy solution we intend to provide.

 

A green light has been achieved with 85%. This success rate exceeds the success metric of 60%.

 

Validated Learning:

Results confirm that the Villages of Jumtha and Vengara are our primary customer segment.

 

From our surveys and engagements with our customer segment, it was determined that our customer segment agrees with the statement that access to energy solutions in Jumtha and Vengra is unreliable and unaffordable.

 

When conducting surveys in Vengara, 2 out of the 2 surveyed identified that access to energy solutions is unreliable and expensive and were willing to pay for a solution. In Vengara, both individuals surveyed identified that they use candles, grid and solar energy. Candles cost $20 per week and access to the EOSA Grid is $30 per week. Solar panels cost $500 from Sangria’s Imports and Exports. Our customer segment indicated that during the wet season, they cannot use the solar panels, with customers complaining of an inconsistent supply. Further customer grievances regarding the solar panel includes an inability to charge a phone and laptop.

 

The surveys conducted in Jumtha indicated that access to affordable and reliable energy sources is difficult, and that community members are not satisfied with current solutions. In regard to solar solutions, our customer segment identified that they are interested in the idea, however lack understanding of how to use it and are unsure whether they can afford it. Customers identified that they are paying $8 per week for candles. Customer access to the EOSA Grid in Jumtha is minimal due to the high cost of $30 per week.

 

We retrieved the $1 offer from 18 customers, validating the assumption that locals in Jumtha and Vengara are willing to pay for an energy alternative that is more reliable and affordable.

 

Next Move:

The next experiment to be conducted is the Utility Testing Experiment.
