In 2023, Ghana’s leading poultry farmers, Kuipers Breeders Ghana, commissioned Dutch & Co to design, engineer, supply and construct the 378KWp ground-mounted solar PV solution at their new farm in Sege, in the Dangme East district of the Greater Accra Region of Ghana.
The company, originally founded in The Netherlands, wanted a Solar PV installation set up on their farm in Ghana in an effort to meet its energy needs while protecting the environment.
The new ground mount solar installation is expected to generate 501,739 kWh of green, stable and clean electricity in its first year of operation, and in excess of 11,500,000 kWh during its lifetime. The solar system’s power output is equivalent to electrifying 670 households. Furthermore the carbon footprint of Kuipers Breeders
Ghana will be reduced to 5,052 tonnes of CO2 carbon emissions.
Commenting on the project, Mr Moses Aidoo, General Manager of Kuipers Breeders Ghana said, “We’re delighted to have invested in this milestone project. Solar energy is the right solution for us, not only because it provides us with energy savings, but it also stabilizes our energy supply which is essential to our operations. Furthermore, switching to solar energy means we are subscribing to international protocols, which as an environmentally responsible company, we want to do.”
