Project Development

From site selection, to project engineering and design, interconnection, permitting, incentive procurement, contract negotiation and execution, we remain involved every step of the way.

Financing

We provide development capital for pre-construction activities at no risk to the client; and arrange financing for project construction and long-term ownership at attractive rates and tenors.

Due Diligence

When it comes to site selection, feasibility studies, and environmental and social impact assessments (ESIA), our due diligence process is second to none.

Smart Partnerships

We partner with best-in-class suppliers and the world’s largest and most reputable energy engineering/procurement/construction companies (EPC), ensuring that every project we deliver is optimized, efficient, and successful.

Our process

Whatever your needs, we deliver.

From identifying locations to optimizing performance, we offer a suite of services for those looking to develop a solar project or invest in renewable energy, at any scale.

Our partners

When you work with us, you gain access to a whole lot more.

When it comes to our partners, we take steps to maximize economic value. For example, by working with the largest energy engineering, procurement, and construction companies (EPC), we’re able to select optimal electrical generating components and negotiate local contracts. By working with world-class equipment providers, we create projects with superior quality and an increased lifespan. This longer lifespan, alongside favorable financing rates, leads to a low levelized cost of electricity. For clients, our strong network makes a world of difference.

Why Sun Africa?

Solar power is the smart choice for Africa.

As the world changes, it’s more important than ever to create clean energy solutions that lead to a better world and improve the quality of life for communities. There are many reasons why Sun Africa’s solar solutions are the best choice for Africa, today and tomorrow.

High Stream of Income

Projects last usually for 30+ years and offer a steady return on investment and a steady stream of income. Solar can also offer a hedge against rising electricity prices.

Reduced dependence on fossil fuels

Solar energy production does not require fossil fuels and is therefore less dependent on this limited and expensive natural resource.

Environmental advantages

Solar power production generates electricity with a limited impact on the environment as compared to other forms of electricity production. Africa has high solar potential, making solar PV systems an effective method of obtaining energy.

Matching peak time output

Battery storage solutions provide long term energy management and can counteract fluctuations in customer loads. Solar energy can effectively supplement electricity supply from an electricity transmission grid, such as when electricity demand peaks.

Modularity and scalability

As the size and generating capacity of a solar system are a function of the number of solar modules installed, applications of solar technology are readily scalable and versatile systems can be built in as little as 9 months, making these projects appropriate for any size or location.

Flexible locations

Minigrid and battery storage solutions offer electricity access to rural and otherwise inaccessible locations, away from the main electrical grid.

International recognition

As renewable energy becomes mainstream, the world is watching. Utility-scale solar not only boosts local economies, it positions the countries that install it as leaders in the eyes of those who wish to engage in their own clean energy projects.

We're only as strong as the people we make connections with.
