Daystar Power, the leading provider of solar power solutions to West Africa’s industrial manufacturers, announced that it has reached an agreement with SBC to install 10.5MW solar power systems for five of its factories across Nigeria. This will bring SBC’s total installed solar power capacity to 12MW, making it Nigeria’s largest industrial manufacturer to power its operations with solar energy.
In 2021, SBC partnered with Daystar Power (“Daystar”) to design, operate and manage nearly 1.5MW solar power systems at two of its bottling plants. Daystar installed 450kW and 990kW solar systems at SBC’s Kaduna and Kano factories. The rooftop installations consisted respectively of 842 535Wp panels and 1,543 535Wp and 532 310Wp panels. With the two solar power systems, SBC will offset a combined 24,224 MT in CO2 emissions over the installations’ twenty-year lifetime and save up to 40% on its power costs.
