Business / Re: Investing In Nigeria...40m by Barcholder: 6:25pm On Apr 01, 2013
lanruma001: Guys! I am moving to Nigeria after been in the U.K for 15years. What type of biz could i invest in with 40M naira?

Thanks

If you are genuinely serious about having money to invest, I'd strongly suggest that you contact me. I'm also based in London and have lived here my whole life. I am as we speak, about to launch a business in Nigeria that WILL become a multi billion dollar business within 5 years. I'll be in Lagos in 3 weeks time to formally launch.

If you are genuinely serious, i'd have a read of the thread entitled "The easiest way to get rich......" Then feel free to reach out if you want to discuss further.

Yes it is. Become a distributor. See the "Easiest way to get rich" message thread.

Great there Uvie!
Because I see no reason why it shouldn't sale, so long as you have factored-in the fact that 80% of the so-called working class in Nigeria earn N50,000/month on the average.

Hi

Thanks for the confirmation. Your numbers are in line with our own research, and we have put in place packages to allow the average working nigerian to afford our products. We offer entry level packages allowing folk to solar for less cost than they currently spend on diesel for their generators.

In order to transform the country as we intend to, our products must be affordable to the ordinary man, and not just the rich. This is exactly what we have done with our product offerings.

Full details will be provided on our website which launches in the next few days.

Uvie

All

There appears to be very little confirmed research about the average spend per household on diesel (or petrol) for their generators each month. We also want to find out whether there are any major differences in spend across different states, and the percentage of average income that's spent of energy each month. All participants details will be treated with the utmost confidentiality.

So, I've decided to conduct the largest single survey ever into the subject in Nigeria. The survey will be administered online, and will take less than 1 minute to complete. As an incentive, everybody who completes it will be given a 5% discount on any products they purchase from us.

Our results will be sent to each respondent, and will be published in the local and national print media (we have several journalists who have expressed a great interest in publishing our results).

I'd be grateful if you could all take the time to complete the survey as soon as it's sent out. The results will be given in infographics format, which are very powerful tools for presenting detailed information in an aesthetically pleasing manner.

Please look out for our survey across the NL pages - your participation will be greatly appreciated.

Absolutely. This is certainly not a silly get rich quick scheme. It is for diligent, honest and hardworking people, of which there are many millions in Nigeria. However, the rewards will be more than commensurate for the effort put in. I always look on with bemusement at the multitude of money earning schemes trumpeted on these boards, and it always strikes me that the biggest problem we have in Nigeria is a distinct lack of "Blue Sky" thinking. Strategic vision that can make a real difference to people's lives. How many more fish breeding businesses do we need? When we literally have vast expanses of some of the most fertile land anywhere in the world. A country which imports over 90% of its sugar from Brazil, when it has even better farming conditions to grow sugar cane within the country and become a larger exporter of sugar worldwide than Brazil currently is.

I will keep you posted with all developments and arrangements. I'll shortly be launching our Twitter page, and you can get all updates from there, with further information being provided via our webslte. In any event, I've taken a note of your email address and will be in contact directly.

feasy1: Hi Uvie,

I sent you a mail on solynta and urecruitme mail boxes.
Its a no brainer that Nigerians will embrace Solar Power with open arms based on the model you have put in place. Government cannot provide 24/7 power supply in Nigeria in the next years but can improve on the current 6000MW generated, if generation reaches the 60,000MW demand it will be more expensive than solar power as cost of deploying Solar Power will continue to decline, reason why Solar has continued to gain traction in Europe, America,Australia and it's been given considerable attention in the middle East where I live.

The email I sent give a hint of my involvement with Solar Energy and how I wish to be part of this.

Anxiously expecting your response to my mail.



Femi.

Hi Femi

Thanks for reaching out. I received your email and will respond to you later today.

coputa: You said you have negotiated with a major nigerian bank who will provide finance for the buyerrs..how,since i was made to understand that distrbutors will need a minimum of #250,000 to begin..please clarify this aspect of the business.

I'm not sure where you got that information from. Absolutely no money is required from the distributors. Zero. The distributors simply sell our product into businesses and homes, and receive a commission for doing so. If they are official Sales Agents (i.e. trained by us, vetted, provided with marketing materials etc) they receive N20,000 for each kW of system they sell. You are mistaking me for the original author of this thread. I did not start the discussion.

The typical system to provide 24 hours electricity to the average home is 2kW, so 1 sale would be N40,000 in commission for the distributor. The financing relates to the buyer, in that they will be able to purchase the goods on credit provided by the bank. We knew that this would be one of the major barriers to purchasing, so the first thing we did was to put a consumer financing package in place through the bank. This applies to both households and businesses, and pretty much guarantees that everybody who either has the cash to pay up front or can afford the finance repayments will purchase.

It does not take a genius to work out that a company that spends N48m a year on diesel each year would jump at the opportunity to purchase a Solar Power system that provides them with permanent 24 hours electricity supply, and costs less than 1 year's fuel costs.

I hope this clears it up.

orekayode: Nice article. But u forgot to consider how many people can actually afford Solar power
In a country where over 2/3 of the populace survive on less than $2 a day. i d say not
up to 5% can afford such.

Your point about affordability is well made, but not strictly accurate. The price of Solar has fallen dramatically in the last 2 years, and is now SIGNIFICANTLY cheaper than diesel. Anybody who can afford to run a petrol or diesel generator can afford to go Solar. This is one of the biggest misconceptions about it. Frankly, if most people knew just how much money they would save by going solar, they would never buy another drop of fuel for their generators again.

Clearly 60% of the population survive of very small wages each month, and so cannot afford our products yet. The majority of this population are not actually connected to the electricity grid in the first instance. Our initial target market are all the grid connected homes and business, mainly in the major cities and towns in Nigeria. Here are a few statistics for you:

Of a population of 160m, there are an estimated 32m households. Of that number, approximately 23% are middle class (according to a recent report by Renaissance Capital. That's 7.36 million households in Nigeria, all of whom, with the help of the financing package negotiated with the bank, will be able to afford our products. And each will save enormous sums of money in the process. This does not include the estimated 9.5 million businesses nationwide that currently rely on diesel generators.

So, we have a quite considerable market to enter to begin with. Let's focus on that first, then gradually spread into the poorer communities in Nigeria, at which point we will be able to significantly subsidise their Solar Power solutions with the considerable profits we have generated. My plan is to eventually be able to build considerable Solar Power stations in remote areas, through which electricity will be provided to the rural communities at considerably reduced rates, whilst still allowing us to generate a profit. As a former banker specialising in Project Finance, I have been involved in several similar type projects in the past. So I know exactly how to execute it, and, more importantly, have the contacts to get it off the ground.

The first part of my mission is to start in 4 weeks.

coputa: Smart dude,in your first post you said the company is in the UK, by then you sounded as if you are resident in nigeria and that you are going to link any interested person with the seller and the buyer..you sounded like a broker of sort..My fear now is in your last reply wherein you stated that you resides in the Uk,and that your company will send the goods down to a new market in nigeria for distribution..i am also worried about your nigerian phone number whereas you are in the Uk,there is a mix up in your post.

Allow me to clarify my position - I am currently based in the UK, and will shortly be moving to Lagos to launch a Solar Installation business in Nigeria, a country with the largest potential for Solar Energy in the world. It's a $2.5tn market, and is completely untapped. The economics of Solar Energy are far superior to any other country in the world. Selling our units will be just about the easiest thing a person can sell. We have negotiated a significant tie up with one of the major Nigerian banks, and will be able to provide financing to all buyers, both residential and commercial.

I have lived my whole life in London, barring 6 years between ages 3 and 9. I have very good reason to be relocating to NIgeria, as the potential to make significant sums of money, AND change the country for the better are blindingly obvious. We have already generated several significant orders, despite not having officially started marketing yet. Our website does not even go live for another few days.

Anybody with even the slightest bit of ambition to be rich would do well to get on board with us. We anticipate selling huge quantities of product to our customers. Our supply chain, installation capacity, Financing etc is already in place. We are just finalising our marketing materials and mobilising a huge on ground distribution network, and then we'll commence sales immediately. Expect to see our on ground presence in lagos within the next 4 weeks.

coputa: If you know where to get the product and those who equally need it and are ready to pay for it,then you are already in business (money)..why bother yourself to show someone and collect a token when you can do it yourself and make all the money..my friend you are dealing with matured mind here and not kids

It is precisely this type of thinking that has held Nigeria down for so long. It's called DISTRIBUTION my friend. Here's a brief business lesson for you.

It's impossible to sell a product into a new market without a distribution network. Not to talk of a market the size of Nigeria. It is precisely because there are very few established distribution networks in the country that it remains flooded with cheap imports of second hand goods that individuals have bought from cheap shops here in the UK, and then dump on the unsuspecting masses of Nigeria.

I am creating a distribution network made up of ordinary people to get our products into every single home and business in the country.

Next question please. I'm a highly successful businessman with profitable ventures in both the UK and the US. I am well versed in the art of launching new services and products into new markets, and the most efficient ways to do so.

Feel free to get back to me if you want a comprehensive business lesson.

Myself2:

Of course it's a scam

What would you say if I said you can start a business in the next 4 weeks, with absolutely no money down, and earn, conservatively, between N160,000 and N640,000 each month?

It's absolutely, 100% true. Please enquire on here, and I'll give you a full description. You will immediately see that it's absolutely 100% genuine.

I'm based in London and cannot believe how easy it is to make money in Nigeria - these opportunities simply cannot exist in the UK, as the market is mature. There is a reason why western and Chinese companies are literally falling over themselves to get into Africa in general, and Nigeria in particular. The local populace should be given a chance to get in on this boom, and that's exactly what my company is offering.

MockingBird: Just read the article, very enlightening. I wish Nigerian to be educated more about the incredible saving potentials solar power holds. Like you said education is very powerful and I'm willing to play my part in helping our dear country defeat this hydra-headed monster called Power-failure.

I'm very pleased that you are dedicated to the cause. I intend to start a powerful movement of Nigerians who, together, will work to eradicate the "hydra-headed monster called Power-failure", as you so eloquently put it.

Nigeria has the potential to be one of the top 10 economies in the world within 20 years, but it MUST solve the power crisis first. Unemployment, particularly amongst the young is at crisis point, with an (very conservatively) estimated 40 million currently out of work. The single biggest reason for this is the lack of Power. The cost of Nigerian goods and services are between 30-40% higher than they should be, as a direct result of the cost of fuelling their generators. The enormous sums of money spent by business each year on diesel is estimated at N3.5tn. That money would otherwise be spent on hiring staff, and would find its way back into the general economy, creating a virtuous circle of additional investment and output.

Foreign investment into Nigeria is severely hampered by the epileptic power supply, again costing millions of jobs.

I urge all Nigerians who love their country to stand up and do something about it. Solar Power is the obvious solution to our problems. Spread the word, tell everyone you know to invest in Solar. Not only will they save an absolute fortune as a result, but they will be doing a great deal to putting our great country on the road to developed world status.

I will play my small part by continuing to provide the cheapest Solar Power Solution anywhere in the world. FACT. Let us show the world once and for all that we have the ability, will, and power to turn our country around.

I will be launching our blog, twitter and Facebook pages next week. I urge everyone to sign up to it - lets make this thing viral nationwide. Let's get all businesses and households energy independent, allowing them to hire our unemployed youth.

I'll leave you with this - 15 years ago, if anybody told you that most Nigerians would have a phone how many people would have believed it? I say to you now that with our joint cooperation, 50% of all Nigerian homes and businesses will be energy independent within 15 years. In achieving this goal, many many people out there who join in the cause will become extremely wealthy.

Uvie

We have finalised details of our referral program, and can confirm the following:

Earn N12,500 per KW for each referral you make
That’s right! We will pay you N12,500 per Kw for each successful referral you make to us. There is no limit to the number of referrals you can make. For example, if a successful referral is made that results in the sell of a 3Kw system then we will pay you N37,500.

The average household requires a 2kW system to receive 24 hours of electricity forever - and will save a minimum of N17.5m over 25 years. GUARANTEED. Actual savings will likely be far higher, as fuel prices will inevitably rise over the period.

So tell your family, friends, work colleagues and local businesses (restaurants, offices, cafes etc) about us and get paid for it. Above all, you will be doing your part in helping to solve the biggest problem Nigeria faces today – it’s energy crisis.

Full details will be provided on our website which goes live any day now. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact me on

Barcholder: A very happy Easter to all of you. I thought I'd provide you with a link to a recent newspaper article about the use of Solar in Kano. It makes for interesting reading:

http://allafrica.com/stories/201301200029.html

There are a couple of inaccuracies in the article i'd like to point out:

1. It is completely false that Solar Power cannot be used for Industrial purposes. In the Uk and US, large businesses and industrial plants are by far the biggest users of Solar Energy, as their fuel consumption rates are extremely high, and therefore seek to mitigate this by going Solar.

2. The price points referred to in the piece are grossly overstated.

Otherwise, a decent article.

Following the enormous amount of interest I have received from people requesting more information about Solar Energy, and it's applications in Nigeria, I have decided to write a "Solar Education" blog. This will be regularly featured on our website, (as soon as it goes live) and on Nairaland.

Education is a very powerful tool, and the more education we have, the more power we have to change our lives.

Quite literally the most ludicrous comment i've read in years. Nigeria as a country only has 5,000MW of power production capacity a year. Current demand levels are 60,000MW, and that of course does not include the 60% of the population who don't have access to electricity at all.

some ladders you need to climb in other to be successful
1 accurate thinking
2 concentration
3 pleasing personality
4 profiting from failure
5 the olden rule [do unto others what you want others to do to you]

Hi

You are of course absolutely spot on. In no way is my message to people that this is some sort of "get rich quick scheme". This is a business forum, and my communications are in the context of business opportunities, and the ease of becoming rich through selling a particular product.

Implicit in this is the fact that in any business, hard work, dedication, determination etc are critical criteria in being able to make it. Rather, I speak in view of the fact that there are some business ventures that are very easy to make money from compared to others. And, from a business point of view, by far the easiest way to get rich is to

1. Identify a product that solves a problem - the bigger the problem the better
2. That saves the users money - the more money the better
3. That provides the buyers of the product with an easy and affordable way to pay for it - e.g. bank financing attached to it
4. That requires zero start up capital
5. That does not require you to have to purchase stock in advance of making the sale
6. That pays generously for each sale that you make.

In this context, becoming a Sales Agent or reseller for someone else's product that meets all the above criteria is certainly the easiest way to get rich from a business point of view. In the majority of instances, lack of financial capital is the biggest barrier to launching a successful business. Nigeria today is full of brilliant business minds with the rampant work ethic and selling ability to make a fortune - if they could only identify the right product to sell, and be able to fund it, pay for marketing, logistics etc. Unfortunately, in a majority of cases, they will fall down on the funding front.

By encouraging people to become sales agents for our product, we are effectively creating a massive distribution network from the ground up. Most industries already have an established distribution network, dominated by a few players. The people on the ground never get to benefit from the huge wealth that's generated as a result. My intention is to change that, and give the people on the ground the ability to genuinely become rich by selling our product.

In effect, I'm allowing people the opportunity to become distributors of our products, thereby allowing them to share considerably in our expansion into what is a $2.5tn market in Nigeria, as of today. The market for Solar energy in Nigeria, quite literally has the biggest potential in the world. Just about every single home and business in the country needs it, and with the rapidly expanding population (projected to reach over 400 million by 2050), massive demand levels are guaranteed on an almost continuous basis. Then factor in the ever spiralling costs of fuel, due to rapidly increasing levels of demand from fast growing economies like India and China, each with a population of well over 1bn people, and its clear to see that renewable energy is a necessity.

Finally please bear in mind that the fuel subsidy currently enjoyed by Nigerians will be removed within the next 12 months, instantly increasing the cost of fuel by close to 50%. If Nigerians think the situation is bad now, just wait till that happens.

info henry: Iam highly impress by your explanations so far but it looks like you will be using lagos to test the ground. I live in port harcourt where the market potential is high. If you have port harcourt in your take off plan, I will be glad to work with you. bighenrio@gmail.com is my email adress. Thanks

Many thanks for showing an interest in our products. We will indeed be using Lagos as our initial launching ground, and our marketing efforts and spend will be focused there. However, if there is sufficient demand for our products in Port Harcourt, despite no direct marketing there, then we are certainly able to fulfil that demand.

You are certainly welcome to work with me in developing the Port Harcourt market. All marketing material will be provided of course, and our website will act as a powerful marketing platform. We can very easily scale up a sales infrastructure on the ground to satisfy the level of demand. As a tech entrepreneur, I very well understand the power of Viral and referral marketing, and have no doubt that it's possible to generate huge interest in our products and services without having an initial on-ground presence.

I'm sure you understand that, given that Lagos is the commercial capital of Nigeria, sound business planning necessitates that it is the ideal launching point.

Feel free to contact me at

Please give us your website address and your email address.

Thank you.

You will note from an earlier post that we are still awaiting final confirmation from the CAC that our company name has been approved. Likewise, our website is still under construction, and will be going live very shortly.

I have learned to my great surprise that it can take as long as 6 weeks to register a company in Nigeria, compared to 3 hours in the UK. So, I'm having to wait patiently until I receive final confirmation from my Lawyer that all is complete. At that point, I'll be able to provide everyone with our full website, Company Name, and contact details. It is prudent to remain silent on that front until I receive final confirmaton.

I'm expecting this to happen within the next week or so.

You are on the right track. and I think you'll get positive response from Nigerians when you kick start the company. but it would be good for you to consider a cheaper model. because alot of people would not want to throw in millions in purchasing a product that is not tested and trusted in Nigeria. Because we have had alot of weak and fake products that have been imposed on us by some so-called business marketers and so on. It would be safe to say that Nigerians are very skeptical about such products. But would love to be a part of your project although I am little too busy to be a field marketer

I forgot to thank you for your interest in being part of the project. There is certainly room for you to participate without actively marketing on the ground. In order to aid the spread of knowledge about our projects, we will be implementing a Nationwide referral program. As a way to say thank you, we will pay each referrer N15,000 for each sale they refer to us. As well as that, we will also routinely give away prizes to people who successfully refer lots of people to our website, irrespective of whether they buy any products or not. This gives us the chance to educate them via our website and signing up to our free weekly newsletter, thereby allowing them to learn more about Solar Energy. The chances are that even if they don't buy one of our products, they are likely to refer their friends and family to the website if they find it sufficiently engaging. And so the word spreads.

I'd be delighted if you would like to take part in this program - its open for everyone to join. With the power of our collective effort, we can successfully re-educate the nation and end the reliance on petrol and diesel generators once and for all.

Regards

Uvie

You are on the right track. and I think you'll get positive response from Nigerians when you kick start the company. but it would be good for you to consider a cheaper model. because alot of people would not want to throw in millions in purchasing a product that is not tested and trusted in Nigeria. Because we have had alot of weak and fake products that have been imposed on us by some so-called business marketers and so on. It would be safe to say that Nigerians are very skeptical about such products. But would love to be a part of your project although I am little too busy to be a field marketer

Thank you for your words of encouragement, and I note your point regarding the price point of the products. Please be aware that on that front, there is relatively little that can be done to reduce the price much further. I can tell you, without fear of contradiction, that the price point we'll be selling at is among the cheapest in the world. We are essentially providing fully installed off grid solar power systems, comprised of many different components - PV Panels (high quality monocrystalline 250W), Inverter / Solar Controller in one (in order to reduce costs where possible), and 12V 200AH batteries. Oddly enough, the most expensive part of the system is the batteries, as anybody who has ever bought deep cycle batteries can attest to. Then there's the actual installation costs.

There are several things we are doing to make these more affordable to the masses. The first is providing financing options for people to be able to buy, and spread the cost over a 24 month period. We are constrained to a 24 month period by our Nigerian bank. It seems banks in Nigeria haven't yet figured out what their role is in the economy. I preliminarily sourced an even better solution to this - in conjunction with the United Kingdom Trade & Industry (UKTI), i'm trying to tap into the credit facilities of a British bank, with very much looser lending criteria. Amongst other things, they will be prepared to lend over a much longer period of time, and at greatly reduced interest rates. However, given that this is NIgeria we are talking about (it's on the red list of every western bank thanks to our 419 brothers - what great ambassadors they are), they are not prepared to release this facility until at least 1 year of successful trading on the ground.

In the absence of that, the second major thing we will be doing is to open up a battery recycling plant. Deep Cycle Batteries are almost 100% recyclable, so by reconditioning dead batteries, we will be able to resell them at a much lower price point, which guaranteeing at least 95% of peak performance of a new one. This will go some way towards dropping the price point some more.

In any event, all our products wil come with very long warranties and guarantees. We will offer no questions asked money back guarantees on everything that we sell. We absolutely stand by the quality of everything we sell, and will provide an after sales service that's unrivalled in Nigeria.

The level of business integrity is low in Nigeria, and I see it as my mission to doing my little bit to changing that. By raising the bar on quality of product, customer services and after sales care, it makes it more difficult for poor companies to retain a foothold in the market. That will be a good thing for everybody.

So, all I can say at this point is that we are very conscious of the price points being somewhat higher than most are willing to spend, given their poor experiences in the past. But please rest assured that the quality of our products, and customer services will be of the very highest order. Transparency and integrity will be at the heart of everything we will do. Why? Because contrary to what appear to be the prevailing belief amongst many Nigerian businesses, it actually makes you money.

AbumC: Don't know much about the solar panel ish, but one thing's for sure. You ll need to have a registered company name and probably a demonstration for people to see for sure its a suitable option. Most Nigerians believe in what they see. The change (switch from fossil fuel to solar energy) you want to bring is a massive one so you gotta take a big step. Many companies & government institutions would jump at this if there is proof it would fail in the nearest future. This is my humble suggestion....surgeondreams05@yahoo.com

Thank you so much for commenting in such a helpful and positive manner. And I agree with every word you have said. Please be advised of the following:

1. You will have noted that in none of my posts have I once made reference to the name of my company. There's a very good reason for this, and that is, as I am learning to my great surprise, registering a company name in Nigeria is no easy feat. I'm currently awaiting confirmation from the lawyer whose services I have retained to confirm that my company name has been approved by the CAC. Whilst I envisage no problems with this, it's prudent to wait until official confirmation before broadcasting the details. I expect this confirmation any day now.

2. I'm very aware of the fact that half the challenge is in Educating the masses - much of our marketing strategy will be aimed at doing just that. One of the many tools we'll be using to do this is hosing informational webinars, where people will be able to ask questions, and generally interact with either myself or a member of my staff. I'll also be encouraging the masses to register on our website, in order to receive regular white papers and eNewsletters about the subject matter. There will be lots of informative videos posted on our YouTube page, which people will be able to subscribe to for free. These are just a few of the activities we'll be conducting on a regular basis. Once people understand the product, and realise the enormous power of it, the decision to buy will be a "no brainer". I can't think of many investments you can make today for N1.3m that's GUARANTEED to make the average Middle class family N17.4m over 25 years, in the form of real cash savings. Even in pounds sterling terms, that's an awful lot of money. People over here in the UK are utterly flabbergasted at the fact that practically nobody in Nigeria has yet seriously adopted solar energy. Just think that in Australia for example, a country that has 24 hours of electricity supply, more than10% of all households now have Solar Power systems in their homes. And they don't stand to make even remotely close to the savings that the average Nigerian would.

3. I certainly do have big plans for Solar Power to become the dominant form of Energy production in Nigeria. I'm well aware, and indeed, heartened by the approach of the current government in trying to explore alternative ways of increasing the (frankly pathetic) power supply in Nigeria. My hugely ambitious plan is to actively demonstrate to the Nigerian government that the cheapest and most efficient way to solve the energy crisis is to encourage households and businesses to "create the energy needs of the country" by feeding back the excess power they will produce from their solar panel systems back into the electricity grid. In effect, each household becomes a mini power station - as well as powering their own homes, they also feed the electricity grid, providing additional power to be utilised by the 60% of Nigerians who are not even on the grid. Households will be encouraged to do this by the provision of government grants to subsidise the purchase of Solar Power Systems, and give credits to those who have already purchased prior to the introduction of the subsidies.

This is a tried and tested system, and has been working perfectly across Europe, America, and Australia for years now. I see no reason the same cannot be true of Nigerians, who actually need it more than anybody else in the world. Central to the achievement of this grand plan is the demonstration of the extreme efficiency of Solar Power. Once my company is able to demonstrate this by virtue of the massive take up and success of its systems across a relatively small (0.5%) of Nigerian households and businesses, we would have proved our credibility. We will then have a voice, and will be taken note of.

All great accomplishments start life as a mere kernel of a thought in our minds. It is the vision, knowledge, know how and passion to turn that thought into a reality that marks out the great among us. With utmost humility, I believe that a simple soul like myself has all the skill sets necessary to make the difference. My passion for my country runs deep, and I'm a firm believer that during my lifetime, Nigeria will become one of the top 10 economies in the world. In order to achieve that, it must first solve the energy crisis. I intend to play my very small part in making that dream a reality.
