Starsight, the leading Commercial and Industrial (“C&I”) solar power provider in West Africa, presented its 2020 Sustainability Award to FCMB for achieving 100 sites with installed sustainable power, storage, and cooling solutions. This milestone marks a significant achievement for Starsight, FCMB, and the Nigerian C&I market.

FCMB has been a Starsight client for six years and has benefited from Starsight’s end-toend power and cooling services at 110 of its branches across Nigeria. With power and cooling installations in place at the majority of their Nigerian branches, FCMB is now benefitting from Starsight’s end-to-end service commitment and system management expertise.
Head for SME Sales for Starsight, Teme Jack, said, “our SME team worked closely with FCMB to facilitate a widescale deployment of Starsight’s best-in-class solar and cooling solutions across their Nigerian branches. We look forward to exploring more opportunities to serve other companies within the FCMB group moving forward.”
Division Head of Corporate Services at FCMB, Felicia Obozuwa, commented, “the journey with Starsight started in 2015 and has grown over the years. FCMB applauds Starsight’s efficient solar solution, which has helped us achieve our sustainability goals. We have faith in Starsight deploying to our sites especially because of their excellent after-sales service. We look forward to engaging Starsight with more businesses to improve energy reliability in our other buildings.”
Starsight’s CEO, Tony Carr, added, “We are proud of our long-term relationship with FCMB and applaud their commitment to sustainability. Starsight’s solutions have provided FCMB with 99.99% uptime allowing them to focus on their core business of banking.
