05 October 2021

“The opportunity offered by enPower.life enables us to take the most significant step towards our sustainability goal so far. By harvesting the suns’ power during the day, we will reduce the strain on our local electricity grid and encourage others to follow our example, while at the same time drastically reducing our electricity costs.”

– Hanif Rehemtulla, director of the Yujo Izakaya restaurant in Kampala, Uganda

We welcome our new client, the Yujo Izakaya restaurant under the direction of Hanif Rehemtulla in the heart of Kampala, the capital of Uganda.

The kitchen specializes in Japanese-inspired dishes, and Hanif Rehemtulla is committed to making the dining experience at his restaurant an overall positive and sustainable experience: His dream is to ultimately absorb more CO2 than what is released. To get even closer to its goal, the Yujo Restaurant wants to cover its energy needs with solar energy in the future and is working with enPower.life to do this.

This also means that we will soon be able to offer you another sustainable investment offer! Because investments don’t have to be unethical 😊

We’ll keep you up to date!

Animated: The CO2 savings of the enPower.life solar plant in Uganda in August

07 September 2021

The CO2 savings report for August is out now! The enPower.life solar plant for the first 5-star eco hotel in Uganda, the Aquarius Kigo Resort, has been operating for several months. In the past month of August, our system generated a total of 2417.71 kWh of green solar power. That means we saved 1.7 tons of CO2. And that is a significant amount we are proud of:

To absorb 1.7 tons of CO2, it would have taken 28 tree seedlings (small trees) a period of 10 years.

1.7 tons of CO2 are the CO2 emissions that result from charging 208 421 smartphones.

1.7 tons of CO2 are released when an average car travels 6930 km. The distance from Hamburg to Munich is around 780 km. And even Moscow is only around 2100 km away from Hamburg!

We have created this short animation to illustrate the data.

We use this CO2 calculator for our calculations.
