About

Founded in 2017 by Raymond Sarr, JOKOSUN covets becoming a decisive stakeholder in the achievement of universal energy access within West Africa, thanks to off-grid energy solutions and an unique bet (in the region) on very high quality and long lifetime. This element is essential for having real social and environmental impacts in the West African rural zones. This is how, day after day, we achieve a little bit more our goal: 1) with individual photovoltaic kits, which include a solar panel (production), a battery (storage), and the needed equipment, totally modular to the customer’s specific needs (families or entrepreneurs). All our equipment are in line with the European standards, and we progressively go further; 2) Complete energy service for a maximal sustainability: on-site installation of the kits by our teams - use and basic maintenance training of the customers, by our teams - warranty and services; 3) the whole is made affordable for unbanked populations by spreading users' payments across 3 years, in a model of "renting until owning".
