DC Go is a Distributed Energy Services Company (DESCO) based in Johannesburg, South Africa with representation throughout Africa.

Off-grid electrification entails localised generation, storage and distribution systems designed to supply a group of customers in underserviced areas.

DC Go offers an energisation protocol for these areas, concentrating on a permanent or long-term solution. The design of the DC Go business model addresses the limiting factors for affordable market entry and has been developed through analysis of per capita consumption throughout Sub-Saharan Africa, with a focus on the differentiation between needs consumption and demands consumption, and the aim of shifting the existing consumption pattern paradigm.
