Start from an existing need and find concrete solutions.

Without energy, no development is possible. Based on this observation, the Solarly team went off the beaten track to explore new ideas in terms of energy solutions. The SolarlyBoxes are the fruit of this expedition: more powerful solar stations that are accessible to all and that allow numerous improvements in terms of economy, security, health or education. It is an ambitious project in which we believe. Together, let's fight to eradicate energy poverty in Central Africa by 2030.

Locations that have achieved energy autonomy thanks to the Solarly Box

Our historical presence in Cameroon

We naturally set out to work in Cameroon, a country close to our hearts with its climatic diversity, its young and educated population and its great need for sustainable and reliable electrical solutions. Its geographical position makes it the economic lung of Central Africa.

  • They talk about us

    What strongly differentiates them from the Chinese competition is also this desire to be there alongside the locals and not just to sell a turnkey solar station and then not give any sign of life.

    RTBF

  • They talk about us

    The Solarly station, designed and manufactured in Belgium, combines three advantages: it is connected (via a "SIM" card, which makes it possible to manage the device remotely), adjustable (according to energy needs) and autonomous (the user does not depend on a network).

    La Libre

  • They talk about us

    In just a few years, companies such as Solarly have expanded rapidly in Africa. It must be said that the market is huge. "Today, more than two thirds of Africans are not connected to an electricity network.
