Renewables: Sarakawa Hotel Gets 500 KWp Solar Plant

(Togo First) - A 500 KWp photovoltaic solar plant was recently set up at the Sarakawa Hotel in Togo. 

The new plant spans 4,000 m2 and includes 1,224 solar panels laid on the roof of the hotel’s main building. 

The facility, which cost CFA496 million, was inaugurated last Friday, August 11. Several Togolese officials, including the ministers of environment and higher education, were present. 

The project was developed in partnership with Cool Solar Energy, a German company. It runs in symbiosis with the national grid and two power generators. 

The new plant should save the Sarakawa Hotel a lot of money spent on power. "Currently estimated at over half a billion FCFA, these costs could be reduced to 350 million FCFA per year despite the extension of our hotel", said the hotel’s manager, Nathalie Bitho.

On the sidelines of the inauguration, the minister of environment, Foli-Bazi Katari, took the chance to laud the initiative, saying it concretely translates Togo’s commitment to tackling climate change and achieving energy transition.
