High stream of income
Projects last usually for 20+ 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.
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 in the summer.
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.
Minigrid and battery storage solutions offer electricity access to rural and otherwise inaccessible locations, away from the main electrical grid.
Marketing and image perception
Boost environmental awareness directed towards potential clients, consumers, partners and communities. ‘Green initiatives’ provide for effective and affordable marketing message to your customers. More affordable energy solutions will also boost the local economy.
