Solar energy is hardly used in Somalia. Most of the electricity production is based on fossil energy. Tamarso is a young innovative company that introduces solar energy systems for medium scale projects. They design and install solar systems according European standards to guarantee optimum result and a durable solution. The investment for the local entrepreneur is expected to pay back within three years, because the electricity prices are extremely high in Somalia. The local climate is superb for using solar energy. Eurafriq provides Tamarso with the requested solar systems, knowledge and connections. Tamarso implements the knowledge, trains local staff and build and maintain the solar systems (www.tamarso.com).
Their first project is a 8,5 KW solar system that will be their test model to show potential buyers the opportunities and reliability of a working system (pictures).
