PROJECT SELECTION. WHY SOLAR ENERGY?.
If the current growth trend in the energy supply and demand continues then it is estimated that Pakistan would be facing a shortage of 31% of energy by the year 2010.
Pakistan is ideally located in the sun belt to take advantage of solar technologies. Balochistan province is particularly rich in solar energy. It has the highest annual mean sunshine duration in the world.

Lack of capital As our business is in its
introductory stage, we often face this
challenge primarily due to lack of
investment in this sector.
The recent energy crisis in Pakistan
has provided a suitable environment
for this industry and our company
also takes opportunity and wants to
contribute in solving this crisis.
The biggest threat that we face is
the high cost of our products
compared to our competitors.
