Puma Energy Namibia Launches Solar Power Projects

 Puma Energy Namibia is excited to officially launch its new network of solar projects across its sites in Namibia. Puma Energy now has 24 solar projects operating at retail stations, depots, and terminals[1] in Namibia with a combined capacity of 781 kWp able to generate an estimated 1,337 MWh annually. It is estimated that this amount of solar energy will reduce CO2 emissions by 1044 tons per year[2].

The roll out in Namibia contributes to Puma Energy’s wider plans to roll out over 200 solar projects around the world by the end of 2022 with a capacity of 8,600 kWp generating 12,500 MWh of electricity, with global greenhouse gas savings of around 9800 tons[3].

Installing solar projects on Puma Energy branded service stations is just one step. In the future, we will use the expertise we have built to offer solar power and other renewable energy solutions to our commercial and industrial customers. 

Adell Samuelson, General Manager of Puma Energy Namibia, said: “Namibia benefits from steady access to the sun all year round. It’s great that we can use our industry expertise and Puma retail and storage sites to benefit communities across Namibia as we all work hard to make a meaningful contribution to fight climate change using the power of the sun. This project will have a lasting positive impact and deliver clean energy.”
