Actis Investment Principal Koome Gikunda said, “We were looking for a turn- key solution that could produce clean power and pay for itself with the energy it produces. Read More.
Koome Gikunda, Director Actis Kenya commented: “Garden City is a project with lots of firsts in this market, but we are particularly proud of the solar carport. We knew that we wanted a solar component to the project early on, but the upfront costs were prohibitive. We’re very grateful to SolarAfrica for stepping in, working closely with partners Solarcentury, and for helping us to realise our vision. Read More.
1. Contact our in country sales team to arrange an introductory meeting.
2. Complete the SolarAfrica Information Request Sheet (IRS).
3. SolarAfrica will then provide a preliminary proposal and follow the necessary procedures to determine the most feasible solution for your site.
A: Given that the solar PV system is a simple grid tied system (no batteries). The Solar PV system will only provide power during sunlight hours. The system will synchronise to the local utility grid and supplement the power provided by the grid.
A: Yes, we have a portfolio of off grid solutions. However, the minimum load requirements are ±60,000 kWh per annum, equivalent to an annual diesel consumption of ±20,000 litres.
A: Three questions need to be answered:
– Is your current source of energy, diesel generators?
– Is your current source of energy unreliable?
– Is your average cost of energy higher than $0.2/kWh
If you answered yes to any of the above questions then you will require, at minimum, a diesel hybrid system or based on the cost of energy, a full off grid solution (solar + batteries + current source of energy).
If you answered no to all three questions then a simple grid tied solution will suffice (solar PV + current source of energy).
A: Yes, we do offer solutions that incorporate batteries. This is however, very project specific.
A: We currently offer complete or financed plans in Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Ghana and Nigeria. New markets are considered depending on size.
A: Yes, we do provide Power Purchase Agreements as one of our financing options. Making use of PPAs allows you to enjoy solar energy on a pay-for-use-basis.
A: Project conception: 2 – 3 months including execution of all agreements and approval of final designs. Construction: 2 – 6 months depending on technologies deployed and installed capacity of the project.
A: Grid tied system: 991kWp (Kaysalt) Off grid system: 818.1 kWp with 3150kWh battery storage capacity (Singita Lebombo) Diesel hybrid: 991kWp (Kaysalt)
We’re Africa’s leading provider of clean energy alternatives to residential, commercial and industrial energy users.
