Botswana’s 2.3 million inhabitants are among masses of Sub-Saharan citizens affected by power shortages. The lack of electricity has led to scheduled blackouts, which are now commonly referred to across Southern Africa as periods of ‘load shedding’. These blackouts usually take place during peak hours, i.e. mornings and evenings when people need the power most.  

With severe droughts at the Kariba Dam, hydropower is no longer a viable option, and the government has insufficient funds to rely on electricity imports or diesel generators. Little by little, solar power is emerging as the cheapest and most effective solution to the crisis. Botswana has 3,000 kwH/m2 of clean, PV energy potential each year, making the nation an ideal host for solar. 

SegenSolar is keen to offer Botswana a range of PV equipment — from solar panels to storage solutions — to help the country generate its own power and take a positive step towards energy independence.  

With solar comes job opportunities, and SegenSolar wants to fill the gap for solar installers in Botswana’s employment market, too. In providing reputable, long-lasting materials, SegenSolar hopes to propel the country towards a cleaner future with abundant power for everyone.  


With solar picking up speed in the capital of Gaborone, SegenSolar is delighted to offer the below products to Botswana’s installer market via trusted channel partners and wholesalers.
