TotalEnergies Marketing Tanzania has opened its first solarised service station in Dar-es-Salaam, allowing customers to experience solar-powered products and services.

The solar-powered station on Samora Avenue in Dar es Salaam’s city centre is part of TotalEnergies’ larger plan to solarize 5,000 service stations in 57 countries by installing solar panels at 1,000 service stations per year, in line with the company’s climate goal of achieving net zero carbon emissions.

In his opening remarks, Jean-Francois Schoepp, Managing Director of TotalEnergies Marketing Tanzania, described the company’s change from Total to TotalEnergies as well as the new company’s goals.

“It is with great honour and pride that we are here today to reveal our milestone and ambition as the first Oil Marketing Company in Tanzania to have solarized service stations which is in line with our climate ambition to have net zero carbon emission and a reflection of our transition from Total Tanzania to TotalEnergies Marketing Tanzania,” said Managing Director of TotalEnergies Marketing Tanzania Ltd, Jean-Francois Schoepp.
