SunSawang Company Limited

Solar energy products for locals by locals
2019 SEED Low Carbon Award Clean Energy Tak, Thailand

SunSawang’s core business is based on a fee-for-service model. Instead of merely providing electricity-generating products, SunSawang also provides complementary maintenance and repair services. Customers sign-up for a combined product and service contract and pay in affordable instalments which makes solar system financially accessible to lower income households.

SunSawang empowers the rural poor through employment and skill building. Sales representatives and technicians are hired and trained locally to provide routine maintenance services and sell lanterns, door-to-door.

Eco-Inclusive Impacts

SunSawang provides reliable and affordable solar energy products, services, technical and knowledge training.
  • Improving the living conditions of 8,700 rural villagers by reducing risk of fire and attaining better health as a result of solar energy
  • Promoting productivity and children learning as the solar lantern makes working and studying at night possible
  • Reducing fossil-based energy: SunSawang produced at least 42,000 kWh/year solar electricity, corresponding to the reduction of fossil-based electricity

  • Providing extra income: 25% of current customers declare that they earn more income using solar systems
  • Creating more local jobs by hiring nine new sales representatives and village technicians



This enterprise is supported through its partnerships with various stakeholders, ranging from national and international organisations, investors, research institutes, suppliers, governmental bodies, NGOs, other social and environmental enterprises and more.
