Redavia’s Free Solar Leases Program Becomes Hit in Ghana, Kenya

Redavia, which offers solar power for businesses and communities especially in East and West Africa, has signed four new contracts under its ‘COVID-19 Resilience Leases’ program in the Ghanaian and Kenyan region.

Under the program, the company is offering businesses with 6 months of free solar to withstand the coronavirus crisis.

One of the beneficiaries of the free solar program is the Siginon Aviation, which is a ground handling company based at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) in Nairobi, Kenya.

The company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy embraces environmental conservation for its communities’ current and future generations, and Redavia’s free solar power solution supports this CSR endeavor well.

Commenting on the partnership with Redavia, Edwin Ronoh, Siginon Group Finance Leader, said that “partnership with Redavia comes at a time when the green agenda is a key business objective. This solar power solution gives Siginon Aviation the opportunity to reaffirm its commitment as a responsible corporate citizen.”

Another company which benefitted from the program was Wonder Feeds Ltd. It has recently upgraded its factory to accommodate its growing animal feed products business. When the COVID crisis hit the economy, management maintained product prices for customers despite the increase of raw material costs, leaving the company with higher operating expenses. Faced with these economics, Abdul Parkar, Managing Director of Wonder Feeds Ltd was thrilled when Redavia extended the same helping hand to him that he extended to his customers.

In another case, Redavia offered Methodist University College Ghana President Akwasi Asabere-Ameyaw, with the opportunity to reduce carbon emissions while also making savings that can be reinvested into the university.

The fourth company which benefitted from this program is Emigoh Ghana Ltd, whose CEO, Stephen Eku, said that “after working for years to create a premium, sustainable food supply chain, I am delighted to partner with a company like Redavia that will allow us to also reduce our carbon footprint in a cost-efficient way.”

On the success of the program, Erwin Spolders, CEO & founder of Redavia, said that “we are glad to be able to make a difference for our business partners in this time of need and start win-win relationships that will last for decades. The COVID Resilience Lease Program is already a huge success, and we are keen to scale up the program further. We invite more companies to apply.”

In April this year, Redavia created a new concessionary solar power program ‘the COVID-19 Resilience Lease’ in a voluntary step to support the Ghanaian and Kenyan businesses in this testing time of economic uncertainty.

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.
