In a voluntary step to support the Ghanaian and Kenyan businesses in this testing time of economic uncertainty, Redavia, which offers solar power for businesses and communities especially in East and West Africa, has created a new concessionary solar power program ‘the COVID-19 Resilience Lease’.
This crisis has disrupted African businesses significantly. In these challenging times, the company helped sound businesses in cutting their operating costs with a free solar plant leasing service.
It has introduced the COVID-19 Resilience Lease program, which provides solar power plants to business customers for 6 months, completely free.
However, post completion of these 6 months’ time frame, customers can choose to roll-over this Lease into a regular Redavia solar plant lease or request the company to re-deploy the plant.
But this offer is available for selected long-term sustainable Ghanaian and Kenyan companies on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last, the company added.
Under this program, Mankoadze Fisheries Ltd (MFL) in Ghana was the first company to sign on to the company’s Covid-19 resilience lease. After availing this program, Godfried Kwame Anafi, Director of MFL, is eager to see the restart of his company’s cold store and resumption of service to the corporate and independent fishing customers as soon as possible.
The company will lease MFL the solar plant for free for six months, so MFL’s system-critical business gets through the crisis successfully.
“Redavia understands the economic implications of this pandemic, and we pledge to be a true friend to our business partners in this time of need,” commented Erwin Spolders, CEO & founder of Redavia.
After MFL, the Royal Senchi Hotel & Resort has also joined this unique program. This hotel which has been hard hit by the pandemic and saw its occupancy rates drop precipitously. Big losses in revenue made lowering utility costs a top priority for hotel management.
Commenting on joining the program, Gerard Schraven, General Manager of Royal Senchi Hotel & Resort, said that “Redavia’s solar plant will enable us to keep our energy cost as low as possible when the hotel re-opens after this global health crisis.”
