Black Star Energy Limited, an entrepreneur of GCIC providing reliable solar electrification to households and businesses has begun its first project in Sierra Leone through its sister company – Power Leone.
As a result of its operations, some 2000 people now enjoy clean electricity supply all day long within the Petifu Junction settlement of the Port Loko District in Sierra Leone after being in the dark for over a century. Black star Energy’s ambition is to provide electricity to the 6 million people across Sierra Leone whom are off the grid.

From returning light to Bauya to providing reliable power for surgeries in Kambia District, to providing electricity and ice making to fishermen to enable fishermen to double their incomes in Port Loko, we are certain that the power we bring will transform the lives of Sierra Leoneans today and for generations to come.”
