Jawaid Tariq Khan, a senior banker and Chairman Highnoon Group of Companies, has offered to electrify a village with solar energy.

Many developed countries including USA, Spain, Germany and even the UAE were building entire cities energized on solar energy simply because it is the cheapest source of energy in the long run.

    Dear Sir I have read the comments and the details about your system. Kindly provide me the details as how much will cost me to have solar system installed a tubewell. What wattage is needed and source of supply for this system. As most of the agriculturists wonder for information on this aspect.
