Daystar Power installs the 100th solar energy system in Nigeria
With the implementation of the solar energy system at a branch of Unity Bank in Bauchi, Nigeria, Daystar Power successfully installed its 100th solar power system since the company’s foundation in 2017.
This corresponds to a growth of 733% in the number of installed systems compared to the previous year, and a twenty-fold increase in the total installed power capacity from 291 kW in September 2018 to 5.6 MW in September 2019. By shifting the electricity supply from diesel generators to environment-friendly solar hybrid solutions, Daystar Power has been able to reduce C02 emission by more than 360 t to date. Overall, Daystar Power’s innovative power solutions consistently save its customers 20 – 30% of power costs while simultaneously reducing noise and air pollution.
Daystar Power works with West Africa’s leading banks including Ecobank, Wema Bank, Unity Bank and Access Bank. Besides banking and manufacturing, clients in the agricultural as well as education and health sector have also indicated strong interest in converting to renewable sources of energy, adding to Daystar Power’s client base. In addition to Nigeria, systems have also been installed in Ghana, where Daystar Power opened a subsidiary in April this year.
