Puma Energy Zimbabwe has ambitious plans to deploy around 300 solar systems throughout its retail network by the end of 2023. This initiative aims to bolster the reliability of its power supply while contributing to the global shift toward clean energy sources.


The company, committed to expanding its market share, recently announced a five-year, $10 million investment plan for network expansion. While the exact investment figure for the solar projects hasn’t been disclosed, the budget has been approved, and implementation will proceed once technical details are finalized.

Solar energy presents a cost-effective solution to Zimbabwe’s energy challenges, eliminating the need for expensive infrastructure development like long-distance power line installations. PUMA has already identified working partners in the solar energy sector and has established teams to design projects, particularly for strategic service stations.


Donatien Kodog, General Manager of Puma Energy Zimbabwe, expressed their commitment to solarizing the retail network, part of a broader plan to install 300 solar projects across their network by the end of 2023. Zimbabwe’s abundant sunlight, proximity to the equator, and consequently high solar radiation levels make solar power a dependable and consistent energy source in the region.
