You can read more about the Sawa City and the work Integrate to Zero does on their website here

In 2023 Integrate to Zero worked collaborated with Sawa City, Rwanda’s largest supermarket chain, in partnership with Solektra Rwanda, and installed a PV and battery system on-site and an EV charger to power their new e-delivery bikes (groceries for their customers).

The system provides the majority of their electricity, saving on average 20% from their previous energy bill, and reducing emissions (in Rwanda electricity is primarily generated from gas).

Sawa are still on-grid for any residual demand. They hope to replicate the system for other stores and to scale up their e-bike charging and fleet.

This energy system incorporates cleaner transport with sustainable infrastructure, benefiting businesses whilst supporting development within the community and reducing pollution. All of Integrate to Zero’s projects centre commercial contracts, designed through sustainable business investments and can be explored in more depth on their website.
