Speaking at the event, Managing Director of Stanbic Bank Ghana, Alhassan Andani said the initiative is part of their campaign on renewable energy.
According to him, the bank currently saves about 38 percent of cost of electricity, noting that, bank will also accrue savings to the tune of close to 2 million Ghana cedis through the project
The Stanbic Bank Ghana MD said based on the success of the piloting of the three branches, the bank will extend the solar energy system to all its branches across the country, particularly based on substantial savings they are making from the 3 projects
Mr. Andani was optimistic that based on the savings they are making, other banks, corporate institutions and even government will join the renewable energy revolution in the country soon.
The project was implemented by Ecoligo GmbH in cooperation with its consortium partner, SMA Sunbelt Energy GmbH, and other installation and service partners.
