SunMax’s Micro-Enterprise Solar Kit (MESKs) is an innovative business solution targeting small businesses mostly those in the rural areas, and also those in urban areas that cannot meet the high cost of electricity. This is a customizable system depending on the business client’s energy needs and it can have an energy-efficient fridge. Retail shops/canteens, owners of camel ranches producing milk, cooperatives of women milk traders, cold drink joints and restaurants are the prime targets for the MESKs which have been designed to sufficiently provide cooling, lighting, phone-charging services.
SunMax sold its first pilot MESKs in February 2019, and by December 2020 a total of 44 kits have been sold, showing a rising demand for the kits.
