Solar Street Lights for Jharikass – Azad Kashmir.

Sharif International has been chosen to install a pair each of solar street lights for Azad Kashmir Bridges. The first installation was done in Jharikass. As usual world class highly energy efficient and high illumination LVD lamps have been utilised to power an unbelievable illumination from a minuscule 23W self ballasted LVD lamp at 6500 Kelvin color temperature.

The results and quality of work are here for your perusal, be it the pole quality, the integration components or the German solar modules, Sharif International has a total commitment to quality and value for money solutions for all.

Solar Home Systems Providing Power to CFLs and Mobile Phone Chargers throughout Swat Valley.

As part of solar electrification of 600+ homes in the Swat Valley, Sharif International has accomplished the first phase of 315 SHSs.

The most deserving and far off communities were chosen to benefit from this scheme. Now the beneficiaries have 3 CFLs each as well as a mobile charger per home. Almost all of the communities were off grid and used to burn kerosene oil and wood for their lighting needs. Now they are saving at least Rs. 1,500 each per month because of newly installed solar home systems. On top of this there are many health benefits for the dwellers due to absence of smoke and soot in their huts.

Some of the main Union Councils include UC Kalagei, UC Dewlay, UC Shamozee, UC Kanju, UC Barikot, UC Bazdara, & UC Sarsenay Kabal. Each Union Council consists of many villages, most of which are in the beneficiaries list.

Solar Home Systems and Solar Street Lights for Mirpur Sakhro Sindh.

Most rural communities in Sindh live far off from the electricity grid. At times the geographical challenges limit grid connection.

In addition to other on going projects in the area, Sharif International has provided 53 Solar Home Systems and 53 Solar Street Lights to the Mirpur Sakhro area communities. The area is near the historical city of Thatta.

What difference this intervention has brought for the target communities can be witnessed underneath.

A Demonstration Solar LVD Street Light Graces DHA Islamabad.

Due to the never ending episodes of power failure in Pakistan solar street lights offer a promising new avenue. While proposing solar solutions it is our effort to economise the target load as much as might reasonably be possible. Our hi-tech LVD lights do exactly the same. With illumination that rivals equivalent 150W HPS our 40W LVD lamps turn on the magic at DHA Islamabad.

Have a look at the amazing illumination being provided by a meagre 40W L|VD Lamp. For technical buffs the foot print of the LVD solar street light should be of tremendous interest!

Energy Audit at a Major Mobile Operator Identifies 67% Energy Conservation Potential!

More than 67% Energy Conservation Potential has been identified through a detailed (investment grade) Energy Audit of one of the largest and oldest cellular operators in Pakistan. Main 14 corporate offices were the subject of the audit, housing admin, operations, CSC and HR.

Many areas like HVAC, Illumination, IT, Escalators etc. were probed and saving areas were pointed along with recommendations and ROI analysis.

The project is in the implementation stage and it is expected that more 35% Energy Conservation projects would be completed before December 2010. The Annual Financial saving will be to the tune of PKR 37 million.

72% Energy Conservation at Shell Petrol Pump Tarnol.

In a recently competed pilot project by Sharif International, one Shell Diesel Filling Station at Tarnol Rawalpindi, more than 72% conservation has been achieved on top of better illumination. The feat has been achieved largely by replacing the inefficient and high energy consuming HPS lamps with extremely the Energy Efficient & Environment friendly and Long Lasting LVD Induction Lamps.

Previously the overall load profile of the Diesel Filling Station was more than 19.5 kW while after conservation it has been reduced to less than 5.7 kW! Before the utility bills were so costly that even necessary lights like canopy side lights and canopy down lights were switched off. Now despite more than 72% energy conservation the illumination levels are many times better than before.

Next time you pass the area have a look for yourself!

Deemas Super Store at Abbottabad adopts LVD and saves a massive 60% off its illumination costs.

Deemas Super Store at Abbottabad Pakistan offers choice stuff to a well off neighbourhood. The offerings in addition to usual grocery stuff include a charming Cafe’ and an exotic BBQ all housed in a large building. The complex also offers a large car park at the back.

The owners here were not happy with the lighting installed because of poor illumination and soaring electricity bills. After many other failed attempts Sharif International was contacted to rectify the situation. After installation of appropriate LVDs in the building, facade and parking lot, the illumination load has been reduced by a staggering 60%.

Just see what it means to conserve energy by way of LVDs and get even brighter illumination.

Solar PV Home Systems for Remote Desert Communities.

Sanghar (Sindh) and beyond is a harsh and hostile area from the point of view of dwelling. Although the people living in this area are very hardy and ingenious, still day to day life here is nothing short of a continuous challenge. Add to this the unavailability of grid electricity and we have what is know as Baqar Village. The different adjoining villages are right in the middle of a large desert.

Sharif International was again the choice of multinational NGOs to provide small solar home systems to these communities. As a part of this project many dozens of localities have been provided solar renewable energy. The village folk have appreciated this positive step and are thrilled to witness their dark nights finally lit up by none other than mother nature itself!

Hummer Wind Turbine Turns on the Magic in Remote Bhoori Village.

Deep in the Creeks of Keti Bandar area is the fishing village of Bhoori. Far away from the grid and with no chance of any electricity in the near future, Hummer Wind Turbine has turned on the magic for the village folk. This 500 Watts turbine has been paired with two 125 Watts CentroSolar German solar modules to create the ideal solution.

Hummer Wind Turbines boast a rated wind speed of only 7-8 m/s and if the wind speed increases to 12 m/s then its power automatically doubles to 1kW! Due to this very feature and a robust design it only takes 3 hours for this Hummer Turbine to fully charge the battery bank that lights up 29 huts for 6 hours at least. The fishing community is over joyed by this new revolution in their lives that provides illumination and electricity to charge their mobiles etc.
