30 Special advertising section PowerPoint lights up the world with green energy POWERPOINT SYSTEMS EA LTD P owe≥Point Systems specialises in ≥enewable ene≥gy solutions such as sola≥ and powe≥ cont≥ol solutions such as powe≥ back up systems which p≥ovide elect≥icity without depleting the ea≥th’s limited ≥esou≥ces. We achieve this by o≠e≥ing both hyb≥id and stand-alone systems. We specialize in Design, Installation and Maintenance of Indust≥ial Elect≥onics/ Elect≥ical Systems and p≥oducts and accesso≥ies. These include UPS, Sola≥ Elect≥ic Systems, Sola≥ Wate≥ Heating Systems, Powe≥ Back-Up Systems, Powe≥ Cont≥ols and ≥elated fields. We a≥e highly custome≥ cent≥ic with most of ou≥ e≠o≥ts gea≥ed towa≥ds custome≥ satisfaction. We o≠e≥ extensive wa≥≥anty on all ou≥ p≥oducts and ou≥ afte≥ sales se≥vice st≥uctu≥e allows us to take on any p≥oducts ≥elated to ou≥ pa≥tne≥ manufactu≥e≥s fo≥ ≥epai≥ o≥ se≥vice i≥≥espective of whe≥e they we≥e o≥iginally pu≥chased. This is because of ou≥ unde≥standing of the gaps found in afte≥ sales se≥vice. We a≥e confident of ou≥ ability to o≠e≥ the most competitive p≥ices on best quality p≥oducts and se≥vices. OUR SOLUTIONS INCLUDE: SOLAR LIGHTING SOLUTIONS: Lighting solutions di≠e≥ in size and complexity depending on the intended application. These may va≥y depending on use e.g. sola≥ st≥eet lighting, home lighting, lighting fo≥ educational institutions and health facilities. SOLAR THERMAL/ SOLAR WATER HEATING: Sola≥ the≥mal is the only economically viable sola≥ solution fo≥ use≥s with access to g≥id ene≥gy. It is possible to make well above 60% savings on elect≥icity bills by heating wate≥ using sola≥. Sola≥ the≥mal solutions have both domestic and indust≥ial applications. SOLAR BOREHOLE PUMPING SOLUTIONS: Sola≥ pumps o≠e≥ a clean and simple alte≥native to fuel-bu≥ning engines and gene≥ato≥s fo≥ domestic wate≥, livestock and i≥≥igation. Sola≥ pumps a≥e powe≥ed by photovoltaic panels and the flow ≥ate is dete≥mined by the intensity of the sunlight. Powe≥Point o≠e≥s ≥eliable and convenient in wate≥ accessibility technologies. INVERTER POWER BACK UP SOLUTIONS: An Inve≥te≥ powe≥ back up system p≥ovides uninte≥≥uptible powe≥ and secu≥ity whe≥e we ≥ely mo≥e on elect≥ical devises to live and ≥un ou≥ businesses. With Powe≥Point inve≥te≥ based Powe≥ Back up Systems; the≥e is no longe≥ an excuse to lose ≥evenue, convenience, comfo≥t o≥ secu≥ity. VOLTAGE REGULATION AND EQUIPMENT PROTECTION SOLUTIONS: Powe≥Point AVR solutions a≥e designed specifically to deal with the high level of p≥otection ≥equi≥ed fo≥ telecommunication applications and fo≥ equipment that ≥equi≥e a highe≥ level of su≥ge, spike, & noise p≥otection. The EastAfrican RENEWABLE ENERGY FEBRUARY 22-28, 2014 The emergence of scalable Solar solutions 2 013 has been a tu≥ning point in the ≥espect fo≥ the secto≥ and its potential to add≥ess the elect≥ification of ≥u≥al communities and g≥owth in ene≥gy demands ove≥ the next 10-20 yea≥s. The Uganda sola≥ ma≥ket has faced a numbe≥ of challenges. Quality has been poo≥, custome≥ confidence has been low and the≥e was a lack of adequate consume≥ c≥edit available in the ma≥ket to add≥ess a≠o≥dability. Businesses that have developed solutions to these challenges a≥e now eme≥ging and p≥oving ≥eadiness to scale. These include Sola≥Now, who p≥ovide high quality modula≥ sola≥ home systems with a 12 month c≥edit facility and 2 yea≥ maintenance cont≥act. With deep expe≥ience and a st≥ong dist≥ibution netwo≥k of b≥anches ac≥oss the count≥y, the business has now sold almost 4,000 systems. This combination of quality, c≥edit and st≥ong custome≥ ≥elationships has been the key to success. Quality and c≥edit go hand in hand. P≥oviding flexible c≥edit is c≥itical fo≥ managing a≠o≥dability and maximizing ma≥ket penet≥ation. Custome≥ satisfaction, t≥anspa≥ency and excellent afte≥ sales se≥vice d≥ives commitment to pay. Remote disconnect technologies a≥e making this easie≥ to manage, but building st≥ong ≥elationships with custome≥s is the key to successfully managing c≥edit and g≥owing a st≥ong custome≥ base fo≥ futu≥e g≥owth. The Sola≥Now solution p≥ovides a modula≥ system which custome≥s can build on and adapt ove≥ time. These a≥e complimented with a g≥owing ≥ange of ene≥gy e∞cient appliances, such as TVs and f≥idges, to enable custome≥s to get the most f≥om thei≥ systems and maximize impact to local communities. If business a≥e to scale successfully and p≥ovide long te≥m sustainability, unde≥standing custome≥s and anticipating the next wave of p≥oduct demand is impo≥tant to meet futu≥e ma≥ket needs and oppo≥tunities. Gove≥nment suppo≥t th≥ough subsidy p≥og≥ams, such as that p≥ovided in Uganda by the Ru≥al Ene≥gy Foundation (“REA”), have helped to build the ma≥ket. REA p≥omote the use of sola≥ ene≥gy and o≠e≥ subsidies to households and businesses. Each company in the p≥og≥am ≥equi≥es ce≥tification and all installations a≥e inspected. This has helped ≥aise awa≥eness and st≥engthen custome≥ confidence.
