Japanese giant Mitsubishi decides to invest in off-grid solutions in Togo

(Togo First) - Famous Japanese car dealer Mitsubishi Corporation has decided to enter the Togolese power market. The firm will provide off-grid solutions to local populations, those living in rural areas especially. The news was disclosed yesterday by Yas Doida, Head of the Company’s Branch in Africa, after meeting with Togolese Prime Minister, Sélom Klassou.

“We mostly discussed energy,” said the Japanese who added that they (Mistsubishi) want to provide power to all Togolese people by 2030. “There are many off-grid projects: it is possible to have efficient energy with lower means.”

Doida then lauded how Togolese authorities welcomed the project, stating that “it will begin this year and be conducted over the long term.”  

Mistsubishi’s move brings Togo closer to achieving its power transition to renewables. This initiative, let’s emphasize, adds to the CI-ZO which is carried out by British firm BBOXX and SOLEVA and also focuses on providing off-grid solutions across the country.
