Inspiration

The founder of Apricus Energy said "When it comes to electricity, people have to pay high prices and still do not get electricity supply for 24 hours. Since the carbon footprint is increasing day by day which is leading to climate change, global warming etc, I thought of coming up with a business which uses renewable source of energy to produce electricity. This will also reduce the depletion of natural resources."

Thus the current environmental conditions and shortage of electricity even after paying high prices by people inspired him to start with this business.

Overall impact

The overall impact is as follows-

  • Reduction in electricity bills
  • Low maintenance and hassle which saves time and cost
  • Alternative source of power production
  • Reduction in carbon footprint
  • Moving towards sustainable development

Business benefit

The objective of business innovation is to build a ‘Green India’ through harnessing abundant solar radiation and achieve energy security for the country. Apricus Energy aims to become the leader in the development of large-scale solar installations, solar plants, and solar parks and to promote as well as commercialize the use of solar energy to reach the remotest corner of India. They target to continuously grow in our innovations and keep exploring new technologies and its deployment in harnessing solar energy.

The current business is focusing on the supply and installation of solar energy solutions. It involves services such as Solar Energy Auditing, On-Grid Rooftop/Ground Mounted Solar Power Project work, Off-Grid/Hybrid Solar Power Projects, Solar System Operation & Maintenance, Standalone & Centralized Solar Street Lighting System, etc. Along with this, they provide training services in the field of solar technology applications. This innovation or the technological advancement in solar energy solutions is the main element on which their business started. Innovations in this field has helped them structure various solar energy solutions. This has immensely benefited the business and the people who are working along, to make this start a success.

Social and environmental benefit

There is no improvement without fueling the vehicle of development. Energy is a key factor for guaranteeing prosperous financial development. Thus access to energy is basic for the prosperity of underdeveloped countries. One billion individuals around the globe live without access to energy. In excess of 781 million individuals in 2016 or 39% of the total populace, don't approach clean energizes and advances for cooking. A number of people utilize little energy, and the little they use is fundamentally served by consuming locally accessible wood on open flames. This is risky in light of the fact that it adds to deforestation, which, thusly, adds to environmental change and desertification.

Apricus Energy believes that the change will come through decentralization. Daylight is accessible everywhere throughout the world; no one has a restraining infrastructure over it. Decentralized structures are required for energy to wind up free from political basic leadership. This fits well with sustainable power sources. Millions of individuals are required to participate in the solar power business to scale up this industry to greater heights.

Solar is a safe alternative that can replace current fossil fuels like coal and gas for the generation of electricity that produces air, water, and land pollution. The use of solar energy will eliminate these unsafe, unclean energy sources and will also reduce its effects. The consequences of using conventional fossil fuels can’t be eliminated completely since the energy needs of the world can’t be fulfilled only by renewable energy sources. However, the constant efforts in reducing the use of energy sources by replacing them with renewable energy will eventually help the world.
