Ghandour Cosmetics is the largest Ghanaian cosmetics manufacturer using renewable  energy to power its factories. 

ACCRA, 27th April 2022-- Daystar Power, the leading provider of solar power solutions to  West Africa’s industrial manufacturers, announced that it has installed a 1.6 MW solar plant  for Ghandour Cosmetic, to power its operations with solar energy. It is the largest solar  installation for a cosmetics company in Ghana.  

The rooftop installation consists of 2,964 x 535Wp panels, offsetting 20,150 MT in CO2  emissions, an equivalent of approximately 16,600 trees planted annually over the installations’  lifetime, and significantly reducing the company’s power costs. 

The installation of the solar plant aligns with Ghandour’s mission to drive sustainability across  its value chain. “As a company, we are environmentally conscious. Our partnership with  Daystar is a step in the right direction reducing our costs from an environmental and financial  perspective”,

said Tanal Ghandour CEO of Ghandour Cosmetics. 

“Reliable and cost-effective power is fundamental to the development of local industries that  can compete globally. Ghandour remains an industry leader and we hope to see more  industries transition to renwable energy which are not only cheaper but cleaner sources of  energy,”

said Olaedo Osoka, CEO of Daystar Power (West Africa). 

Ghana is poised to drive the transition to renewables in the region. The government of Ghana,  in addition to being a signatory to the Paris Agreement, has demonstrated that increasing the  proportion of renewable energy in the energy mix is a priority. To meet the country’s goals to  achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050, more industries will need to transition to  renewable energy sources.
