Our vision and mission

Our vision is for Africa with access to micro off-grid solar technology in every household. We currently provide sustainable energy solutions to customers based in Botswana and South Africa.

Our story

Our history

DELTAEON Energy™ is the result of a journey taken with its umbrella DELTAEON™ – it started out in 2017 by selling smartphone accessories and other technology online with the added convenience and service of getting exactly what you want and delivered right to your door! 

DELTAEON™ was one of the first successful online stores operating in Gaborone, Botswana.

Pivoting towards sustainable energy solutions, DELTAEON Energy™ was formed in early 2019 and is based in Gaborone, Botswana.

DELTAEON Energy™, a subsidiary of DELTAEON Botswana (Pty) Ltd is a 100% citizen owned company that was founded by Arturo Luis Alvarez. Arturo is focused on the marketing strategy and growth of DELTAEON Energy™, and is responsible for building, evolving, and sustaining it’s growing team. 

The company was formed with the vision to promote the welfare and wellbeing of those most in need. 

Our impact

Our contribution will be at the grass-roots level, nevertheless, it will make a significant impact on the quality of life. We are ensuring the supply of reliable and affordable light solutions to all households, especially those living under the poverty line, providing basic human needs to these underserved populations, encouraging sustainable private renewable energy production and lighting solutions.

Electricity access remains a key issue for SADC member states.

About 52% of the population in the SADC region have no access to electricity, with an average of 68% living in rural areas. Despite the vast renewable energy resources of the SADC Member States, the renewable energy market remains largely underdeveloped. 

The challenges encountered in efforts to extend the electricity grid, specifically to remote sparsely populated rural areas, have proven the cost-effectiveness of using distributed renewable energy for increasing energy access. Expanding access to modern, reliable, and affordable energy services have, therefore, become a key regional priority. 

In most African cities already connected to the national grid, the people are still subjected to expensive monthly electricity bills, rolling blackouts, load shedding, and concerns about the current and future reliability of electricity supply.

Achieving universal access to electricity is essential for solving many global development challenges. 

The “Energy for all” initiative

New IEA geospatial analysis in an “Energy for All” scenario, shows that to provide universal electricity access to 1.3 billion people by 2030, mini-grids would be the cheapest technology for connecting 450 million people. This number includes projected population growth, of which two-thirds live in sub-Saharan Africa.

We have our distribution chain and strategy in place to supply our sustainable energy products internationally. With the backing and support of the DELTAEON Energy™ brand we can ensure that our distributors are always stocked and have the necessary tools and branding to successfully take our product to market.

If you are interested in distributing our solar energy products in your region then please visit our Opportunities page to learn more.


Community engagement opportunities

Our products are suited and an affordable option for many communities in need of light and economic empowerment. Providing sustainable light solutions to the communities in need is one of our major focuses.

We’re committed to ending the use of kerosene lamps.

Many children have no option but to study by the light of a naked flame. Kerosene lamps are widely used for lighting in rural areas where electrical distribution is either not available or too costly for widespread use. Yet using kerosene is extremely inefficient, dangerous, and expensive, and it has extensive health and environmental drawbacks. 

The World Bank estimates that breathing kerosene fumes is the equivalent of smoking two packets of cigarettes a day and two-thirds of the adult females with lung cancer in developing nations are non-smokers. 

Replacing kerosene lamps with cleaner, safer solar-powered lighting represents a major challenge that DELTAEON™ is prepared to tackle across multiple fronts. 

Please visit out Opportunities page if you are involved in a community outreach project and would like to get involved with us.


DID YOU KNOW? Globally, there are an estimated 1.1 billion people around the world that do not have access to electricity?
