Your partner from inception to operation

Our model

Solarcentury Africa is more than a developer. We operate an integrated model which means we develop, build, own and operate solar projects. Also importantly, we manage the key financial and commercial stages – from equity and debt, to the PPA or BOOT, and the energy management. We see this integration as key to our success.
