Africa is confronted with massive population growth. To feed the fast-growing population, forest land is converted into agricultural land. This has a devastating impact on local and regional eco systems. SolarNow offers farmers solar powered productive appliances that increase the yield of their land, including solar water pumps, drip irrigation, cooling, drying, grinding, etc. SolarNow sells high-quality, reliable solar systems in Uganda and Kenya. Clients can take advantage of 24 month credit terms and 60 months free service and warranty. SolarNow operates 58 branches employing 900 FTE. By the end of 2017 the company had installed over 25,000 systems.
