At a Glance

  • Replaces coal fired thermal energy sources to reduce an average of 694,471 tonnes of C02 per year. 

  • The project developer, supports supplemental initiatives that uplift community members and protect the environment


Project Benefits

Social:
  • Supports rural electrification projects covering almost 3000 villages in the region. 

  • Currently funds 12 local schools providing them with upgraded infrastructure and basic amenities.

Environment:
  • Reduces greenhouse gas emissions by eliminating the need for coal fired thermal energy sources

  • Generates 732,874 MWh/year of clean renewable energy


How it works

  • Project developer funds and installs solar panels, a renewable energy source that generates electricity.

  • The electricity is sold to the state energy grid, displacing the need for energy generated by coal fired thermal  power sources.

  • Greenhouse gases are reduced, the grid becomes cleaner, and offsets are sold to continue developing the project and supporting the community.
