Nigeria’s Unity Bank is going solar. The company and Daystar Power are working together to move the bank’s power supply at its 240 branches across the West African nation from diesel to solar-powered solutions.
The bank believes the switch will enhance the banking experience of its retail customers.
Daystar Power belongs to the venture capital company Sunray Ventures of the German founders Christian Wessels and Jasper Graf von Hardenberg.
Daystar Power will provide Unity Bank with a combination of hybrid battery backed-up solar power solutions, which will reduce costs as well as carbon emissions.
