Sunna Design to install 100,000 solar streetlights in rural areas

Sunna had undertaken to install 50,000 solar streetlights in 12,000 villages in 24 months. The company, headed by Ignace De Prest, is behind schedule, but promises to install the remaining 20,000 units by the end of 2024. This partnership is being implemented with the financial support of the French Treasury to benefit 1.5 million people.


The equipment is being installed at a time when the Togolese government is exploring ways of speeding up the electrification of its population, estimated at just over 8 million. The West African country has an electricity access rate of 60% (by 2021), according to the German International Development Cooperation Agency (GIZ).
