We are pursuing SDG 7
"Ensuring access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all"

Sawa Energy empowers East Africa’s small and medium businesses by reducing electricity pricing and volatility. We build, own, and operate solar systems for our clients, enabling them to go solar and save money without any upfront costs.


We aim to become the largest private provider of solar power and seek to deploy 50MW by 2030, supporting 1,000 clients. 


Sawa Energy was founded by three environmentally and socially conscious entrepreneurs, who bring significant experience in Solar, Finance, and doing business in Africa.
