ONYX Solar Will Acommplis The Largest Photovoltaic Integration In Africa


The largest photovoltaic skylight in Africa at the I&M Bank headquarters

Onyx Solar signs the largest project of photovoltaic integration in Africa with Privida and Sterling Bank. This project aims to remodel the bank's headquarters in Lagos, Nigeria with Onyx Solar's photovoltaic glass.

Onyx Solar will supply up to 6,500 m² of crystalline silicon photovoltaic glass to be installed over the building's spandrels. As a result of this integration, the leading bank in Nigeria will also become a reference in terms of modernity and sustainability. What's more, Onyx Solar commits to plant up to 6,500 trees in Africa as part of its tree-plant program “one square meter, one tree”.
The installation of 3,250 crystalline silicon glass units imply up to 1 MWp of installed power, which will substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions and its ecological footprint.

Onyx Solar continues its international expansion in Africa with new photovoltaic integration projects. Soon, the Spanish company will also install its photovoltaic glass for Microsoft's headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya. Thanks to this innovative technology, the tech giant takes a step forward to be aligned with 10 Sustainable Development Goals established by the United Nations.

Onyx Solar's photovoltaic glass was previously integrated into I&M Bank's headquarters in Nairobi, which led to the construction of the largest photovoltaic skylight in Africa. This skylight is made up of 2,200 m² of amorphous photovoltaic glass with different degrees of transparency.

Other projects in Africa worth mentioning are the Union National Bank of Egypt's photovoltaic façade and a photovoltaic canopy located at the Mohammed VI Polytechnic University of Morocco.
