Daystar Power, a Nigerian solar power provider, has announced that it will partly power the Isolo factory of Promasidor Nigeria Limited, makers of Cowbell, with 2.7MW of solar facility.
This was revealed in a statement Daystar Power and obtained by EnergyDay on Monday.
Daystar Power is a Nigerian off-grid services provider owned by Shell that specializes in installing solar facilities in large firms and industries in Nigeria. It has built a track record of installing solar power systems for factories in Nigeria.
The company aims to reduce their dependence on polluting diesel generators and cut their carbon emissions, thereby closing the country’s power deficit and meeting growing demand for clean energy.
The Promasidor, on the other hand, is the makers of Cowbell, Nigeria’s leading powdered milk brand, and seeks to reduce its carbon footprint in its Isolo plant significantly with this solar project.
EnergyDay gathered Daystar Power has installed 10.5MW solar power systems for five Seven-Up Bottling Company factories, bringing SBC’s total installed solar power capacity to 12MW, making it Nigeria’s largest industrial player using solar.
Daystar Power has also partnered with Nigerian Bottling Company on solar power provision, with over 3MW of installed solar power capacity, which made NBC the largest Nigerian manufacturer using renewable energy to power its factories.
Daystar Power has commissioned an 800kWp solar power system for UAC Foods, which will provide 50% of the factory’s daytime power consumption, reducing the use of diesel generators.
