SOLAR ENERGY IN ZIMBABWE
Onesun Solar Limited - FOSTERING THE AFRICAN CLEAN ENERGY MARKET
The meeco Group has established a new Joint Venture with The C & J Group who have 41 years in business in Zimbabwe. Previously, meeco was already engaged in Zimbabwe since late 2013 and has installed clean energy projects country-wide to promote sustainable development. The new joint venture will open new opportunities and builds on the wealth of experience the two companies have and further speed up the adoption of new clean energy services in the region.
Zimbabwe, is one of the sunniest and best-irradiated countries in the world, is perfectly suitable for solar energy installations. Encouraging alternative power production resources is imperative for the country to reduces its dependance on the national grid, avoid load shedding and power cuts, and provide the possibility to supply communities living and working in remote off-grid areas with reliable power. Exploiting the energy from the sun, as an infinite power source, leads to consistent and sustainable power supply, which consequently supports the growth of a green economy.
Onesun Solar (Pvt) Limited aims to bring new clean energy services for Zimbabwe by joining the expertise of both founding companies. Within this cooperation, The meeco Group delivers turnkey renewable energy services and products, such as the solar energy generation and storage system sun2live, the rooftop solar solution sun2roof, and the intelligent energy management system sun2safe. On the other hand, C & J with over 41 years of experience in a range of businesses including microfinance, retail, and the innovative ZimSwap project has already established excellent market penetration and networks, promoting the solar solutions through its extensive marketing team based in Zimbabwe.
The sun2safe, meeco’s intelligent energy management system, is one of the most requested renewable energy solutions as it perfectly meets the energy requirements of customers in the Zimbabwean market. Clients can discover the benefits of a 5 & 10 kVA-sized sun2safe and the new sun2go solution targeting the rural off grid communities.
