About REDAVIA

REDAVIA is the industry leader in rental solar power. We provide rental solar farms to businesses and communities in West and East Africa. With a proven track record in cost-effective, reliable and clean energy, REDAVIA is committed to using solar energy as a key driver for sustainable development.

The innovative REDAVIA pay-as-you-go system consists of a pre-configured container model containing solar modules and electrical components. Once the container is on-site, our REDAVIA-trained, local specialists manage the installation, operations and maintenance of each solar farm.

Our carbon neutral solution can be used to support existing power structures by supplementing the utility grid or on-site diesel generators. Through our flexible rental agreements without upfront investements, our customer can reduce costs and increase their operational flexibility without the burden of an upfront investment.
