Who, What & Where

  • Sepon LTD
  • 4.4 kW
  • Location of project: Selous Game Reserve, Tanzania 

The Company

Sepon LTD is a solar energy Company that is based in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and operates all over East Africa since August 2013. Visit our website at www.sepon.co.tz or when in Tanzania come to our Dar es Salaam office located at Mlimani Tower 7th Floor opposite Mlimani City Shopping Mall along Sam Nujoma Road. 

The Challenge

The client was completely off grid with no other source of power in a wild game reserve which need less noise and hence solar system was the best option for them. 

Renewable Solution

The 4.4 kW is powering 2 water pumps, 2 solar freezer, 20 cooling fans and 76 lights in the 16 staff camps as well as the camp air strip. 

Project Financing and Costs

The project was financed by our client Frankfurt Zoological Society (100%).

Project Outcome

The 4.4 kW solar system has enabled our clients's staff to work in the remote area with no fear of wild animals since there is adequate lighting throughout the night as well as electric fence around the staff houses thereby reducing risks of attacks by wild animals like elephants, lions and hyenas. The staff work morale has increased considerably since the solar was installed since they are also able to charge their phones and watch television after work. Their output has therefore increased greatly.

Next Steps

Sepon LTD welcomes all organisations with off grid offices to be powered by us and to expect double work output from their staff.
