Who we are

logo bonergie EN

Bonergie is a social business in Senegal in western Africa. We offer our customers a wide range of products based on solar energy, providing them with access to light, electricity and water.
The Bonergie products have been developed especially for those regions that have no connection to the local power grid. They are, however, also ideal for parallel use in urban areas, ensuring that electricity is also available during power outages.

Access to energy gives people the capacity to act. Their quality of life increases and they have the opportunity to generate income. Thanks to flexible payment plans, all Bonergie products can be acquired independently. Our customers generate their own electricity exactly where it is needed. This gives them independence and allows them to plan both their lives and work.
Our range of products comprising decentralised solar solutions covers almost every requirement. Families, small and medium-sized enterprises, communal facilities such as schools and hospitals, as well as agricultural firms can all find sustainable solutions with Bonergie.
