Today, Tanzania’s leading solar energy solution provider, Rex Energy, introduces for the first time in Tanzania a mobile solar equipment system aiming to ease the life of Tanzanian’s living both in urban and rural areas.

Speaking in Dar es Salaam, Mr. Francis Kibhisa (Rex Energy Managing Director), said “Most rural households rely on kerosene lamps for lighting and pay quite significant amounts to have their cellular phones charged. The product intends to address these issues through the promotion and sale of integrated PV light and cellular phone charging products.”

Rex solar home systems is a high quality plug and play kit which is portable, affordable, durable that allows a customer to easily install and maintain without the haste of needing a technician. It is highly envisioned that this product will both enhance and modernise energy delivery or access in Tanzania by complimenting Government’s efforts of improving access to power as well as promoting, in parallel, a sustainable PV economy that can benefit the private and household sector as well.

Rex Energy solar home systems are available in a wide range of capacities such as: RIL15, RIL20, RIL25, RIL30, RIL50, RIL60, RIL100, RIL170 and RIL270 and can light bulbs, fridges, TV sets, radios, fans and mobile phone charging.

These can be used in construction sites, health facilities, educational institutions, mosques, churches and tourist camps.

“We continuously strive to provide our customers with the best that the market has to offer in terms of solar product varieties without compromising quality to ensure better living standards of Tanzanians” said Mr Kibhisa.
