Solar solutions firm d.light cautions Kenyans against counterfeit products amid increased demand

NAIROBI, Kenya, May 12 – Solar solutions firm d.Light Solar is cautioning the public against unscrupulous merchants selling counterfeit solar products during this Covid-19 pandemic beyond and beyond.

Alex Olum, the Managing Director (Kenya), said their concern has emanated from increased reports of counterfeit products as Kenyans seek alternative ways of sustaining their energy needs amid the power blackouts that are often associated with the long rains.

Olum added that with increased demand for power during this period of working from home and children staying at home longer than they usually do, the importance to get genuine solar products was paramount and “can never be overemphasized”.

“We know kids are home and need to keep up with their studies and thus we reduced our S3 price specifically for them to enable parents to get this for them availability durability and warranty,” said Olum, adding that they have done their pricing and payment models with the understanding that “people are going through hard and uncertain economic times.”

“We are also giving products at an affordable cost the S3 which is a reading light is now retailing at Sh450, down from Sh725. We advise that Kenyans do not fall for greedy people who want to make quick money by selling them counterfeits in the name of genuine products. All they need to do to protect themselves by only contacting us through our contact numbers or visiting any of our 204 service centers across the country.”

Paul Mumo, national Sales Director said: “We know about the floods and power outages and that is why we have come up with flexible payment plans to ensure nobody is inconvenienced because of unpredictable power supply.

“We as d.light are available across the country for customers to access our products and having been listed as an essential service we have all our shops open and teams available to offer support around the clock.”
