Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) operating in the country have been urged to invest in back-up power systems as well as renewable energy solutions to ensure a consistent productivity.

The Sales Director of Comsec Technology Solutions, Boaz Alon, who made the call, also explained that such investments were a sure means of cutting down on operational costs.

“Rising cost of operation means that downtimes caused by unscheduled power cuts – as the country has experienced over the past few years – have the potential for hurting businesses if they do not source for cheaper alternatives,” Mr Alon told a section of the media after a seminar and exhibition of some of its solutions.

The seminar was attended by a cross section of business owners as well as representatives from both public and private sector entities. Participants were given first-hand demonstration of how the company’s power back-up systems could assist businesses and organisations.

Quick responses

According to Mr Alon, it was important for vendors of back-up power systems such as inverters and uninterrupted power supply (UPS) to have quick response and support systems since slow responsiveness contributed further to the downtime of businesses.

He said Comsec, in partnership with leading UPS manufacturer, Gamatronic, as well as EverExceed, renowned for its battery power bank and solar solutions, had set up a one-stop shop to address businesses that faced energy challenges.

Mr Alon said the partnership would afford businesses an opportunity to have their energy needs met in time and at a cost-efficient manner.

He said the company had opened a state-of-the-art laboratory in Adabraka, a suburb of Accra, where well-trained Ghanaian engineers provided after-sales service to customers.

Mr Alon expressed the confidence that Comsec energy solutions were sufficient to enable businesses as well as individuals seeking efficient power back-up solutions to save up to 30 per cent of what they would have spent on power.

Comsec also provided flexible payment schedules for customers who were unable to provide outright payment, he said.
