SunTap Uganda a leading solar solutions provider has today handed over the Mpunge Health Center 3 solar project which was funded by the polish development organization….. Mpunge Health Center, located along the Mukono – Katosi Road, has for a long time grappled with lighting and other energy issues. “To start with, the community has had no serious health facility. Even after getting one, we have had no power to the extent of using torches and lamps to have women deliver. As a matter of fact, people have feared to go to this health center especially at night” said Vincent Muzangandda a resident of the area.
Speaking at the handover ceremony, Ms. Esther Katete the Marketing Manager, SunTap Uganda noted that the company took on the project because it has potential to benefit a lot of people. “At SunTap, our mission is to promote use of renewable energy solutions for improved living conditions.We are here today because, we believe people deserve to live in the best conditions of life to achieve their full potential.
With this energy solution, this health center will go a long way in providing the people of this area with the best medical services all day all night and for us, that is a milestone reached”. Katete said. According to Ms. Loy Kyozaire, the Technology Manager at SunTap Uganda, the company has reached several clients both in rural and urban setting. She stressed that the company is largely owned and run by women who have a strong background in the energy sector. SunTap offers a range of high-quality solar home systems, solar security lights, Solar Water heaters that are designed to fit the needs of residential, Schools, Hotels, commercial buildings, healthy centers and Lodges among others. As we do not compromise on quality, our products are certified by UNBS. We are members of Uganda Solar Energy Association (USEA). SunTap Uganda has been in operations in Uganda since 2015 and the company has handled a hundreds of domestic and industrial projects.
“We were approached for this project because of the successful projects we have handled in the past we have successfully delivered energy solutions to other organisations before, such as the International Alert sites in Bunagana and Mpondwe borders. We are thankful and happy that we have been part of improving the livelihoods of this community, and we plan to carry forward this work in other parts of our country, since over 80 percent of Ugandans are still lacking access to energy.
