Project 1 - Size: 100KWp - Type : On Grid
Location: Aswan Our ministry of petroleum affiliated client had the foresight of installing a self-consumption system which reduces consumption rather than sell to the government. In 2015, they were saving 30% on their electricity bills, with a return on investment of 12%. As of 2016, since electricity prices for companies jumped by a staggering 40% to EGP 0.96 per Kilo Watt Hour (KWh), they are now making returns on investment of 18%. These numbers are expected to increase even further as the government quickly removes electricity subsidies during the next 8 years until it reaches world prices. By 2025 the returns could reach 25%.
Project 2 (5 Stations) - Total Size : 125KWp - Type : Off Grid - Location : Sinai
Location: 4 Sinai + 1 Cairo Ismailia Road Located all over Sinai and with locations with no access (or expensive to access) electricity, in addition to constant electricity cuts and high diesel prices, these gas stations now have a 4 hour backup system that seamlessly turn on as soon as electricity cuts. Now our client doesn’t have to worry about the loud diesel generators and high running and maintenance cost of diesel generators.
