Distributed Power Africa (DPA), a subsidiary of Econet Global, has entered into an agreement with TotalEnergies Zimbabwe to install solar panels at 15 of the energy company’s service stations across Zimbabwe.

According to DPA Zimbabwe CEO, Divyajet Mahajan, the move comes as part of an initiative by TotalEnergies to install solar-powered service stations across 55 African countries by 2040.

“We are excited that businesses are taking such big steps toward adopting renewable energy and we look forward to a great collaboration with Total Zimbabwe as we work on the roll-out of solar power, which is an essential transition to new energies,” Mahajan said of the agreement.

DPA has been assigned the custom-design, procurement, and installation of the solar photovoltaic (PV) power systems. The company will also be responsible for the operation and maintenance as part of its maintenance agreement with TotalEnergies Zimbabwe.

DPA has been responsible for the installation and commissioning of solar panels at TotalEnergies service stations in Rusape, Avondale, Emerald Hill, Westgate, and Chisipite, with service stations in Victoria Falls, Kwekwe, and Msasa currently undergoing a power-needs assessment.

The installation of solar panels to service stations in Zimbabwe is expected to reduce the company’s dependence on the country’s national grid by 30%.
