After a years-long partnership, ecoligo, the German climate solution leader will take over Namene Solar’s project business in West Africa.

Accra, Ghana, 1st September 2021

The German company ecoligo, provider of a solar-as-a-service solution for companies in emerging countries, will add the commercial and industrial solar projects of Namene Solar West Africa, based in Ghana, to its rapidly growing portfolio of solar projects.

Namene Solar has been active in Ghana since 2015. During this time, they have developed and constructed pioneering solar sites in Ghana, including the 400kWp Central University solar system that was realized in partnership with ecoligo.

Namene Solar will focus its West Africa operations on scaling its global solar lights business. The lights division is growing rapidly, with leading NGOs and high-volume corporate buyers among its customer base, and an innovative climate financing scheme. While Namene Solar West Africa will remain part of the Namene Group, focusing on its successful lights business, Namene Solar’s West Africa power division will be acquired by ecoligo.

ecoligo’s acquisition of Namene Solar’s Ghana C&I business comes amid a rapid growth phase for the Berlin-based company, including new flagship projects in Africa and Vietnam as well as forthcoming entry into multiple new markets. With 3.7 MWp of solar power projects in the country already, ecoligo is thrilled to further grow its business in Ghana in pursuit of its mission to tackle climate change at the source.

“We are delighted to announce that ecoligo will be taking over Namene Solar’s C&I projects division in Ghana, ensuring continuity for our staff and customers whilst we focus Namene Solar’s West African operations towards our market leading small-scale solar lights offering. We are confident in the continued, successful growth of Ghana’s solar market, utilizing ecoligo’s expertise and solar-as-a-service model for emerging markets.”

“With the effects of climate change growing everyday we know the time to act is now. This expansion of our project portfolio in Ghana dramatically increases the amount of CO2 emissions we prevent from entering the atmosphere and positions us to further grow our business in Ghana. Our unique solar-as-a-service business model has helped over 100 businesses to seamlessly move to affordable solar power. We are thrilled to provide the same high level of service and support to our new customers.”
