Sunna successfully installs 30,000 solar streetlights in Togom

The implementation of public-private partnerships (PPPs) is bearing fruit in Togo’s energy sector. The French company Sunna Design has installed 30,000 solar streetlights in rural areas, mainly in the Savanes and Kara regions. The work was carried out as part of the PEP’S rural project (Solar Public Lighting Programme) implemented by the Togolese Agency for Rural Electrification and Renewable Energies (AT2ER).


According to Sunna, these new solar streetlights “play a major role in the day-to-day activities of the Togolese people, facilitating transport, work and learning at night, or simply the freedom to move around at night in safety. They also help to limit the rural exodus through the deployment of sustainable, decentralised infrastructure in areas that have been revitalised and are now more attractive”. The equipment is being installed under a PPP to be signed at the end of 2021 between Sunna and the Togolese government.
