Our Story

About Us


Sawa Energy empowers Rwandas’ 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 2023, supporting 1000 clients. 

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