Clyde & Co acted to Premier Solar Group on the deal.
Premier Solar Solutions, the Kenyan subsidiary of Premier Solar Group, is already a leading player in the Kenyan C&I solar sector with five delivered projects totalling 2.7 MW, eight projects totalling 8.8 MW currently in execution, and a pipeline of a further 20 MW in Kenya. Starsight Energy is the leading C&I solar power provider in West Africa with over 547 sites across Nigeria and Ghana.

Rupesh Hindocha, founder and CEO of Premier Solar Group, will be the Chairman and CEO of Starsight Premier Energy Group.
