Sebastian Bovensiepen, chief operating officer of meeco, said: “Today, Powerspeed is one of the most experienced hardware and electrical retailers in Zimbabwe with an excellent market position and network. Our mutual expertise makes Onesun Solar the most experienced PV provider in Zimbabwe, which will have a significant impact on the development of the photovoltaic market in Zimbabwe.”
