Total Ghana unveils third solar powered station

Accra, January 18, 2019 - Total Petroleum Ghana Ltd., a locally listed oil marketing
company, has opened its third solar powered station in Kumasi as part of its
commitment to develop solar energy through cutting-edge technology.
The Total Mile 4 service station which is also the very first of its kind in the Ashanti
Region, has 50 solar panel installation with about 16.35 kWp of power production. This
service station is an ultramodern one with a convenient shop, forecourt and a lube bay
for efficient vehicle servicing.

Speaking on the project, the Managing Director, Eric Fanchini said that the installation
of the solar system is expected to contribute to the reduction of the site’s carbon
footprint. Since the company inaugurated the Tema Main Harbour solar service station
in July 2018 and the second solar station at Takoradi Airport Junction service station
in November 2018, it has been able to save up on electricity cost, harnessing the
potential of solar energy.

The three solar powered stations were constructed and maintained by local engineers
and solar experts. The company believes that the way to consolidate its social
operating license is to share expertise with the local skilled force and to listen to
stakeholders.

‘As a responsible industrial player, Total Petroleum Ghana takes action to develop
new energies that are efficient and environmentally friendly.’ This, he said is equally
central to the modernization of our service stations to bring convenience and quality
products and services to customers. In addition to the solar station, the company
introduced solar kiosks to selected service stations in 2018 to provide easy access to
phone charging and wifi connection. The company started the wave of renewable
energy in 2015 with the introduction of 100% solar lamps which are accessible at all
Total service station shops nationwide.

Total Petroleum Ghana, which was adjudged Brand of the Year at the Ghana Energy
Awards, will continue to show its leadership strength in investing and improving the
standard of its stations for the benefits of customers and the general public.
