This is the largest solar power plant built to date by Starsight Energy, which has just entered the East African market. The implementation of this clean energy project is intended to support the development strategy of Big Bottling Company, which wants to double the production of its factory in Ogun State. The plant currently operates with gas generators.
The solar energy will offset the gas consumption of the Big Bottling Company plant during peak production of the PV system. “We were motivated to expand production at our Nigerian primary plant in a sustainable way and Starsight provided an excellent solution. Their system integrates with our existing power infrastructure and was designed, installed and online in five months,” says Prahlad K. Gangadharan, CEO of Big Bottling Company.
Starsight estimates that the 950 kWp solar plant will enable its new customer to reduce its CO2 emissions by 11,743 tonnes over 10 years, which is the duration of the existing contract between the two partners.
