Sterling Bank powers HQ with solar energy


Sterling Bank PLC, Nigeria has become the first African corporate organisation to power its headquarters with the Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) energy technology as its primary source of energy.

The bank via a statement by the Group Head, Energy, Dele Faseemo said it is a major milestone and a demonstration of the Bank’s commitment to its vision of concentrating investment under its HEART of Sterling programme on five sectors, namely, Health, Education, Agriculture, Renewable Energy and Transportation which it believes can impact the economy remarkably.

The statement partly reads, “The building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) project is being undertaken in Lagos, Nigeria following the official nod received from the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission and the relevant agency of the Lagos State Government; and an Agreement signed between Sterling Bank and PriVida Power Limited, a Nigerian-based international energy company.

“The specialized BIPV panels will be supplied by Onyx Solar, a solar energy company founded in Ávila, Spain, and a global leader in the manufacturing of transparent photovoltaic (PV) glass for buildings.”
