High Consumer


I use the most power at home during the early mornings and at night, can solar work for me?

Yes, with our precisely designed battery storage systems using the best technologies, the unused solar produced during the day will be directly stored into the battery for use at night and early in the morning.

How many will my battery storage work for before I need to replace it?

Battery storage needs to be designed optimally based on your specific usage and using the correct batteries built for daily cycling. If both of these are done right then your battery storage will last 8-10 years, hence making the solar plus battery solution economically viable.

How much will it cost me to install solar on my home? And how long does it take to payback?

Solar home systems are custom designed based on your personal requirements, based on the required size of battery storage the payback through savings can range from 6-9 years.

Can I run all my kitchen appliances and washing machines on solar?

Yes, you can be totally off the grid with solar energy and run all your appliances. However these appliances require a high in rush current and consume a lot of power so the solar system must be designed accordingly to support these. Or you can isolate such loads so that it is powered directly from the grid. It depends on the clients preference and budget.

Since the day I switched to solar, I have pumped water everyday and not paid a single shilling for KPLC or diesel to run my borehole pump! The solar works all day giving my farm continuous water supply for the crops, and excess water that we provide to the nearby communities.

Solar Facts

Kenya, as per our conservative calculations would need just 120 square kilometers of solar panels and 0.53 square kilometers of energy storage, in order to full power the country (as per current generation and demand requirements). This is equivalent to less than 0.2% of the area of Turkana which is 68,680 square kilometers.

The sunlight we receive for just an hour is enough to generate energy for one year for the whole world.

When there’s a huge solar energy spill, it’s just called a ‘nice day

Unlike other energy sources, such as coal and oil whose reserves will diminish, the sun is here to stay and so is the energy we can gain from it.
