INAYA GOES GREEN

Inaya Zanzibar Installs Solar Panels

In 2021, Inaya Zanzibar chose to ‘go Green’ and installed solar panels at the factory and offices in Mtoni, Bububu. We decided to do this for a variety of reasons.

Zanzibar is a tourist destination, and for most of the year we welcome thousands of guests to this paradise island. The national grid cannot sustain this demand, and often power is rationed on the Island.

SUSTAINABLE

2,790 HOURS OF ZANZIBAR SUNSHINE

As a manufacturing company, we had to make a choice; either invest in a fossil fuel generator or use a solar-powered alternative. We opted for solar firstly because it is clean, green and a renewable energy. Also, in the long term it is cheaper, it is not dependent on other sources of energy, and it is low maintenance.

We now produce enough solar energy to run the entire Inaya factory as long as there are sunny days in Zanzibar.

The monthly total of sun-hours over the year in Zanzibar, Tanzania

On average, Zanzibar enjoys 2,790 sunshine hours annually.
That is nearly 9 months out of 12 of sunshine!"

GOOD PRACTISE

By choosing to go with solar power, we maintain constant production at the factory, respecting GMP (good manufacturing practices) as well as offering excellent customer services without disruption. In addition, we are saving money on electrical bills as well as having a power backup system whenever there is a power cut.

We are also the only SME (small to medium enterprise) cosmetic manufacturer on the island to install solar panels.

THE RESULTS

Since installation in September 2021, Inaya Zanzibar has been able to save TZS 3.9Million (US$ 1,675) in power bills. We have reduced our carbon emissions by 5.92 tonnes. This is equivalent to planting 152 trees!

HOW DOES SOLAR POWER WORK?

The Sun is an extremely powerful energy source. The radiation from the Sun is capable of producing heat, causing chemical reactions, or generating electricity.
