Sub-Saharan Africa is in the middle of a power crisis, facing daily power outages which can last up to several days and with many citizens not having access to electricity at all.
The unreliability and high cost of power are a significant burden for West African businesses and impede their competitiveness in global markets. As a reaction, Sunray Ventures founded Daystar Power, with the mission to provide electricity to West Africa’s commercial and industrial businesses.
Daystar Power is providing hybrid solar power solutions to commercial and industrial customers in Africa. With objectives such as: reducing energy cost by 20-30%, providing stable power at 99% uptime and reducing emission by replacing diesel generators.
Daystar Power has a team of ~140 professionals and engineers and is operating in Nigeria, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Senegal and Togo.
Daystar Power completed in January 2020 a Series B equity investment round of USD 38 million with IFU, Proparco, STOA and Morgan Stanley, supporting its further growth in West-Africa. Daystar Power is also supported by IFC Worldbank, DEG, Sunfunder, Trine with debt facilities.
