The University was founded in 1997 and has grown to become a prominent multidisciplinary, high-quality tertiary education institution over the years. The client was one of Botswana’s first tertiary institutions to be accredited by the Human Resources Development Council (HRDC). Faculty of Business & Accounting, Faculty of Engineering and Technology, Faculty of Health and Education, and Faculty of Hospitality and Sustainable Tourism are the four faculties that currently offer programmes at the university. They have around 350 staff members and over 3500 pupils. In addition, the university maintains a presence in three other African countries.
The client is currently paying a premium to the electrical grid. The University is interested to switch to clean energy to meet their daily energy needs. As a result, the customer and the partner have signed a Loan Agreement for the commissioning and management of the 648kWp rooftop solar installation.
