The and distributor of home Solar Systems George Katendeigwa has challenged Government to crack down substandard solar products on the market.
Katendeigwa appealed to the ministry of energy to take serious actions in order to stop the importation of the fake solar products onto the market as genuine dealers try to offer solar power solution.
Launching the first solar Television set X850 on the market, Katendeigwa noted that fake solar products on the market discourage the potential clients for solar power thereby affecting the business growth of the dealers with genuine products.
He said that there is a huge potential market in Uganda for Solar since only 6 million out of 40 million Ugandans are on the National grid but counterfeits undermine the efforts of having more households opting for safe Solar Power solutions despite the availability of reliable products.
“D. light prides itself for giving Ugandan consumers superior and reliable solar products like the X850 TV set and more energy options at very affordable cost, “he said.
At the initial cost of 90,000 shillings, a consumer can access a solar kit to enjoy the freedom of improved quality of life that comes with off-grid light and entertainment.
