SunGate Solar provides solar powered, battery operated modular electrical devices and systems in rural and urban locations in South Sudan. Based in Wau, the company was started in 2013 by founder (Mou Riiny) and US-based NGO (Village Help for South Sudan) with additional technical support by IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers). In 2015, SunGate Solar formed and registered in South Sudan as a commercial, for-profit venture.
