Solar energy, a clean, renewable power source, is generated through the conversion of energy from sunlight into electricity, either directly using photovoltaics or indirectly using concentrated solar power. Solar photovoltaics is rapidly becoming an inexpensive, low carbon technology to harness renewable energy from the sun. Solar power is competitive with any form of fossil based electricity and cheaper than most. Photovoltaic systems use no fuel, and modules last 25-40 years. Thus, capital costs make up most of the costs of solar power.   

In collaboration with our international partners, BKF is embarking on projects to provide solar energy to rural areas. You can become a part of this by partnering with us on this project. We intend to construct concentrating solar power plants (CSP) and photovoltaic power stations in rural areas to ease the pressures of the need for electricity in these areas. Provision of solar energy will discourage deforestation and environmental pollution from fumes from burning wood. Unlike fossil fuel based technologies, solar power does not lead to any harmful emissions during operation which will be in line with our aim of achieving the sustainable development goals of clean energy generation.
