- OFGEN Africa, a Nairobi based solar power developer and EPC has commissioned a 338.57 kWp & 0.75MWh off grid solar PV plant to power Old Mutual’s UAP Equatorial Tower, the tallest building in Juba.
The Solar project has been built on the building’s carpark area providing shading to vehicles during the day. Excess energy generated by the PV plant is stored in Tesla powerpacks minimizing the cost of diesel consumed by generators. In this project, OFGEN innovative financial model allows the end customer to pay for energy consumed ensuring immediate savings.
The project uses Jinko solar panels and a TESLA powerpack for storage and is in line with UAP Old Mutual’s environmental sustainability program. The company is looking to benefit from the energy savings this renewable energy source will bring.
“We are proud to have been pioneers locally in implementing about 10MWhrs of industrial-scale storage solutions for our on-grid and off-grid clients resulting in onsite stable power supply and cost savings,” said Jibril Omar, OFGEN’s Chief Executive Officer, and Commercial Director.
