Puma energy rolls out PV-batteries in Ghana
- Solar and storage space systems totalling 422kW/ 224kWh have actually been installed at 14 websites
Puma Energy's Future Energies service has actually launched 11 solar projects at its retail gas stations and a more three at its terminals in Ghana, West Africa.
The solar power generation at 11 of the 14 sites is supported by battery storage.
The combined solar as well as battery power systems in 14 service stations and terminals in Ghana become part of Puma Energy's Future Energies' larger organization strategy to roll renewable energy projects worldwide.
