During the International Solar Day 2018, held in Oslo on May 16, we signed the agreement for the purchase of four more villages; this in addition to the two already delivered.
The International Solar Day is an annual event gathering representatives from the Norwegian solar industry, sponsored by Norwegian Energy Partners and Solar Energy Cluster Norway.
The picture shows Mr. Morten Schøyen, CMO at Eltek and Dr. Stein Skjørshammer CEO of SunErgy signing the agreement; Eltek being the “solar equipment” supplier.
We shall “electrify” eight villages this year. No shortage of work. With the equipment for the next six villages ordered and delivered, we are well under way.

Friday was a milestone day in the history of SunErgy as the company successfully completed a 5 000 000 Norwegian krone or a little more than half a million Euro share capital increase.
“This is how we planned from the very start” says the Mr. Haugen, chair of the board of directors and co-founder together with Dr. Skjorshammer, who serves as Managing Director.
“The idea from the very beginning has been to take in additional capital as we continued building” Mr. Haugen and Dr. Skjorshammer informs. “So far it has worked as planned. Existing shareholders contributed the money needed to finish the next villages. We interpret this as a vote of confidence in us, the worked carried out and the vision of SunErgy. Actually, we could have gotten more money, but this was what we needed this time”, they concluded, thanking all who support and take an active part in the future success of SunErgy.
