Special Ice has chosen REDAVIA to establish its first solar farm in Ghana. The two signed an agreement that will see nine solar units and a total of 756 kWp being deployed at the Special Ice factory in the Oyarifa district in Accra.
Once complete the farm will represent REDAVIA’s largest solar farm in Ghana to date.
The agreement allows for Special Ice to save on a monthly basis from the get-go and own its solar farm at the end of the contract.
“We are delighted that we found REDAVIA as a partner that we can trust for our venture into renewables and solar in particular,” says Dr. Ernest Ofori Sarpong, CEO at Special Ice. “Our vision ‘to be the most outstanding manufacturing company in the beverage industry producing and generating natural great taste’ is dear to our heart, and our investment into solar will help to set us apart in the industry in terms of cost structure, sustainability and CO2 emissions.”
Erwin Spolders, CEO & founder of REDAVIA, confirms, “We are very proud that REDAVIA gained the trust of one of the most respected businessmen in Ghana, confirming the benefit of solar power and its impact to the bottom line of a growing company like Special Ice.”
