Solamon expands into Africa; Parahoo and Sobnack to oversee Mauritius launch
(Toronto) – Solamon Energy Corp. CEO Graeme Boyce proudly announced today the company has selected Shreekant Parahoo and Zano Sobnack as executive partners to oversee and manage its Solamon Mauritius initiative. Effective immediately, the duo will together begin to develop solar projects on the island, a republic located east of Madagascar. “These recognized businessmen came to us with over four decades of related commercial activity,” states Boyce. “We’re extremely confident in their experience and ability to execute large-scale deals in the short-term and to successfully grow our presence into Africa.”
“In the wake of Solamon’s initial announcement to enter the substantial Mauritius market,” Parahoo explains, “we’ve been steadily receiving not only offers of assistance from our Mauritian friends but also numerous requests for both local and regional alliances. We are certainly in an excellent position to help the government achieve its energy mandate with an integrated approach, and to enhance the country’s existing Grid Code and ensure a truly green Maurice L’ile Durable in the future, and we hope that this will be as close to government energy policy self-sufficiency as possible.”
Solamon, now developing solar projects in the Caribbean and Central America, has entered an exciting new commercial phase, adds Boyce, with recently concluded mutually-beneficial supplier agreements enabling the company to enter both South Asia and Africa to sell its Apollo Acre™ expeditiously in a turnkey manner, and the buyer to generate its own solar energy independently and retain and use it or sell excess into the grid for transmission and distribution nationally under the terms of a standard Power Purchase Agreement.
Shreekant Parahoo, who taught at the University of Mauritius and for five years was a senior advisor to the government, is proposing several names for an operating company, subject to it being available at the Registrar of Companies in Mauritius. “I feel good about Solamu,” Boyce concludes. “Intuitively it works for me and personally I like the brand association with ancient history, specifically Mu.”
Solamon Energy typically offers a ground-mounted solar array of integrated photovoltaic cells over a package of land called the Apollo Acre™. The company now also designs and installs custom solutions with local partners to provide roof-mounted and parking lot systems that are easily augmented by micro wind turbine technology and other innovative features to supply renewable energy based on the demands of local electricity users and communities at large.
About Solamon: Solamon Energy Corp. sells integrated arrays of ground-mounted and rooftop photovoltaic cells. These solar power plants are connected by cable to varied transmission equipment, including converters, inverters and batteries; utilizing pre-defined acres of land per unit, each unit is called an Apollo Acre™. Additionally, it is expected the company’s business activities will spin-off many jobs locally, given unique engineering requirements, construction, unit commissioning and subsequent maintenance.
