* WindForce PLC to acquire Sky Solar (Pvt) Ltd
Mon, Sep 13, 2021, 09:25 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Sept 13, Colombo: WindForce PLC, the pioneers of renewable energy in Sri Lanka, is set to acquire Sky Solar (Pvt) Ltd owned by Sunshine Energy (Pvt) Ltd. for Rs.265 million.

WindForce has signed a Share Sale and Purchase Agreement for 100% of the controlling stake of the company.

Sky Solar currently owns and operates 2.2 MW of rooftop solar at eight factories located in and around Colombo.

Having been in the renewable energy industry for over a decade, WindForce PLC has established 27 plants across Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Uganda, and Ukraine and continues to bring new projects under its wing.

The acquisition of Sky Solar (Pvt) Ltd. will increase the company’s installed capacity from 218 MW to 220.2MW and bring its number of rooftop solar plants in operation to three.

After the initiation of net metering in Sri Lanka in 2011, the contribution of rooftop solar to the national grid rose to 31 MW in a short period of five years via domestic systems. Investments in the rooftop solar industry have proven to be a more cost effective, sustainable alternative to nonrenewable energy resources in the long run.

Being at the forefront of the renewable energy industry in Sri Lanka, WindForce continues to expand and bring the country forward through the latest technology and innovation- contributing to Sri Lanka’s efforts towards attaining 70% renewable energy by 2030.
