SunSawang Company Limited
Solar energy products for locals by locals
SunSawang’s core business is based on a fee-for-service model. Instead of merely providing electricity-generating products, SunSawang also provides complementary maintenance and repair services. Customers sign-up for a combined product and service contract and pay in affordable instalments which makes solar system financially accessible to lower income households.
SunSawang empowers the rural poor through employment and skill building. Sales representatives and technicians are hired and trained locally to provide routine maintenance services and sell lanterns, door-to-door.
Umphang Wildlife Sanctuary collaborates with the enterprise in providing permission for building or installing solar power systems in their areas
Glow Group Thailand has financially supported SunSawang's initiative related to solar systems installation in schools and public facilities and training
The SEED Low Carbon Awards 2019 in Ghana, India, Indonesia, South Africa, Thailand and Uganda are sponsored by the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU).
