We are a renewable power generation company which delivers utility-scale projects across Africa. Our goal is to deliver sustainable, reliable and competitively-priced power through taking wind and solar projects from mid or late-stage development into long-term operation. Delivering this is critical for many countries in Africa but presents a number of significant hurdles.

Lekela was founded in 2015 to address these challenges. We draw on decades of energy experience held by our management team, and the heritage of our founder shareholders, Actis and Mainstream Renewable Power.

Our vision is to build an organisation that offers best-in-class delivery of clean power in African countries. Today, our portfolio includes over 1,300 MW of projects in Egypt, Ghana, Senegal and South Africa.

Central to our strategy is a focus on creating long-term value for the communities where we operate. We want to make a positive impact that lasts for generations in these communities. Beyond the provision of renewable power and employment, we also focus on promoting education, enterprise and environmental initiatives.
