French giant Total teams up with Solergie to develop solar energy solution in Togo

(Togo First) - Total teamed up with Solergie to provide Togolese people a new power solution based on solar energy: SolergieBox. This is a 220V system whose capacities can be increased depending on customers’ needs.

Solergie’s Managing Director, Marie Dominique Lodens commenting on the development said: “SolergieBox is a solar-based power system that generates 220V for up to 8 people. Each of these has access to his or her own box and own meter”.  

“By paying CFA15,000, each customer gets access to an installation enabling connection to two rooms with one lamp, a socket and a switch respectively, and CFA5000 of power credit. Solergie will take care of the connection part and guarantees maintenance and repair on the box,” added Bert Bernolet, CEO Solergie.  

According to Adrien Bechomet, managing director Total Togo, venturing into renewables was driven by “pertinence of investments in clean energy and its socioeconomic impact, in rural areas particularly”.

At the end of this year, Solergie expects to install 240 SolergieBoxes and 3,000 by end-2023, impacting 24,000 households which is more than 200,000 people.
