Burao Solar System

Established in 2010, Burao Solar System installs renewable energy systems for offices, warehouses, and residences. Alternative sources of power are expensive in larger cities, and rare in rural areas. Burao Solar System provides phone charging, cold storage products, and solar pumping systems for wells and boreholes in rural villages.

The company was approved for a loan from the Nordic Horn of Africa Opportunities Fund to purchase solar panels, batteries, and inverters. These products will enable Burao Solar System to expand their business operations further into remote areas to reach more consumers. Burao Solar System plans to implement a pay-as-you-go service to collect payments from rural consumers and believes the investment will allow them to hold ample inventory to lend to their customer base.
