(Business in Cameroon) - Orange Cameroon just launched its energy distribution offer via solar kits, internal sources reveal. Baptized Orange Énergie, this offer also includes satellite internet and television and can be paid via the operator’s Mobile Money service.

The various kits offered to residents are constituted of a central unit, a solar panel and three bulbs. Depending on the client’s available resources, a 4G box can be added for internet connection and a satellite television set.

The price for this service is comprised between XAF205 thousand and XAF379 thousand (payable within 12 months). It comes with a 2-year guarantee and customer service.

Orange Cameroon thus joins Total in the promotion of solar energy in Cameroon. For years now, this oil company has been selling Awango-branded solar lamps. Total indicates that it sells more than 90,000 solar lamps yearly in Cameroon.

These offers contribute to the diversification of the country’s energy mix, which is largely dominated by hydroelectricity and thermal energy. In the mix, solar, biomass and wind energies barely represent 1%.
