We strongly believe that clean, renewable energy holds the answer to a better planet. Technological advances in clean energy have led to a much lower environmental impact than conventional energy technologies. By investing in renewable energy in Nepal, we hope to contribute 900 megawatts to the country’s sustainability portfolio.
