BRIEF HISTORY AND BACKGROUND
Taatisolar was established in 2017 as a Dutch-Namibian joint venture. The company is importing and distributing Solar Home Systems (SHS) and DC solar powered appliances to off-grid markets in Namibia and aspires to expand into neighbouring countries. Its business model is aiming at financial sustainability with a developmental social impact. It considers all off-grid areas in the SADC countries as its market, provided it can be economically supplied using Walvis Bay as its main logistic hub.
Taatisolar has been growing from a sustainably small start-up and is operating from three locations in Namibia. Procedures are now in place and a stable organization has been built. The first quarter 2020 was fully geared to expansion and breaking into new markets, set-up of warehousing and appointing personnel in Windhoek.
Covid-19 has slowed down the process for 3 months but has since been picking up as from July 2020. The company is currently in full preparation phase for the scale-up driven by several bulk local retail chains as well as two newly acquired export customer in South Africa with a presence in Zimbabwe as well.
A marketing and sales office has been established in Cape Town in October 2020.
