This solar-plus-storage project powers Nhimbe Fresh, an agriculture leader in Marondera, Zimbabwe. This is our largest project to date, the first outside South Africa, and features unique benefits, including:

  • Integrated battery storage means solar energy from your cells can be used 24 hours a day, maximising earnings and CO2 reduction and eliminating the risk of power outages.

  • USD denominated lease mitigates risk of local currency fluctuations.

  • Lease payments are fixed per cell per month, rather than per kWh, giving you more certain and predictable earnings.

Nhimbe Fresh exports blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, stone fruit, snap peas and snow peas to major international grocery retailers across the world. The company embraces its interdependence on the environment and aims to uplift surrounding communities. Through its outgrower scheme, Nhimbe Fresh works with 250 smallholder farmers who receive specialised training and gain vast access to export markets.

Phase 1 of this multiphase project will power Nhimbe Fresh’s packhouse and cold store facilities.
