Daystar Power Group signs solar deal with the German Government in Nigeria

May 25th, 2018

Daystar Power Group, a provider of small to mid-sized captive solar power solutions in Nigeria, has signed an agreement with the German Technical Advisory Group (GTAG), a division of the German government. Under the agreement, Daystar Power Group will offer solar solutions to provide sustainable support to the joint counter-terrorism efforts of the Nigerian and German governments in Nigeria.

GTAG has made laudable progress in providing the Nigerian armed forces with vocational and technical training in different parts of the country, in order to enhance the capacity of the Nigerian Armed Forces in the fight against insurgency.

Daystar Power’s solar solutions will be commissioned in the third quarter of 2018 and when operational, will deliver four key benefits: reduced energy costs, stable power supply, reduced pollution and effective power management in the sites. These solutions would cut GTAG’s annual diesel consumption by over 60%, resulting in cost savings from mitigated operation and maintenance costs, while positively impacting the environment through a significant reduction in carbon emissions.

“We see significant opportunity to offer affordable, reliable, low-carbon power solutions by integrating solar within our client’s existing power framework,” Christian Wessels, Founder of Daystar Power Group, explained. “We are excited at the strides being made in advancing the use of renewable energy and transitioning Nigeria into a low carbon economy.”
