Afghanistan is a country located within South Asia and Central Asia. With a population of approximately 32 million, Afghanistan is the 42nd most populous country in the world. The decades of war have left the country’s power grid badly damaged. As of 2012, approximately 33% of the Afghan population had access to electricity and in the capital Kabul, 70% had access to reliable 24-hour electricity.
The country currently needs at least 2,000 MW of electricity, and is estimated that it will need around 3,000 MW to meet its needs by 2020. The Afghan National Development Strategy has identified alternative energy, such as wind and solar energy, as a high value power source to develop.
Su-Kam decided to spread the knowledge of solar power and established its service centers and authorized outlets in Afghanistan. Slowly people turned to solar to light up their homes. Today, increasing number of people are taking inspiration from each other and installing solar systems in their homes in Afghanistan.
Su-Kam feels proud to help such a large number of citizens of Afghanistan country and to successfully establish a flourishing solar industry.
This story is about our authorized distributor located in Afghanistan and how he has taken up the pledge to solarize the entire country.
