• Sustainable Energy to Build Sustainable Communities

  • Our Purpose

    Sustainable Energy to Build Sustainable Communities.

    More than 1.3 billion people around the world live without electricity. We intend to do our part in aiding these people to gain access to clean and affordable power supply. This will enable greater economic and social prosperity, infrastructural development and employment, starting in our country Zimbabwe.

     

    Our mission is to advance environmental and climate protection, with a commitment to our rural communities, reviving our industries, uplifting our country and elevating our employees.

     

    Through the deployment of the latest technologies, we will work towards boosting the ratio of renewable energy sources, such as wind, natural waste, hydro and solar power to achieve a greener society. In order to build a more green, sustainable society and reduce CO2 emissions, we need to limit the use of increasingly depleting fossil fuels, and advance the use of renewable energy sources, such as solar, hydro and wind power.
