We started out with a vision to provide free power and education to all Ghanians, this has now evolved into a holistic approach to agriculture, sustainable agricultural development, education, waste management and power supply.
We have created five products & technologies, with more in the design stages. We have used innovative designs and original thinking to overcome the inherent problems associated with these technologies.
The power stations, desalination plants, hydrogen extraction plants, anaerobic digesters, and hydroponic farming systems, were designed with the needs of Africa in mind. We wanted to design systems that were economically viable, easy to build, easy to maintain, easy to understand, easy to operate and easy to implement utilising local resources, manpower and recycled materials.
We are confident with the full implementation of our products and technologies we would generate Ghana between GH¢ 35.02 – GH¢ 43.8 billion annually in VAT receipts alone, we would increase the agricultural yields by between $125 - $150 billion per year , Ghana would no longer be reliant on Western Aid, it would be able to repay the National debt, the Government will, for the first time, have the means to create a Ghana that the people desire and deserve. Ghana will become a model for Africa, the centre of the African continent, its leaders remembered in history.
The main problems associated with the use of solar power are cost, size and solar down time. By building a power station capable of providing enough power for an entire village means small and very economically viable machines. The machines would extract hydrogen gas from water to provide their own auxiliary power supply in solar down times and as a back up, by incorporating Ecosan toilets and anaerobic digestion systems, we can generate more than enough methane gas to use as an extra auxiliary power supply, and provide Ghana with GH¢ 2 billion of organic fertiliser per annum.
The reflector technologies are in use on a daily basis in India, where 2000 machines each, provide enough heat to cook for up to 35,000 people a day and have been in constant use since 1986. The reflectors can be manufactured from recycled car parts and with the use of an innovative collector design, we have negated the needs for the dish to track the sun, thus considerably reducing cost, maintenance and improving reliability.
The energy converter is a simple device consisting of six moving parts and would be manufactured in Ghana. It is possible to retrofit/convert existing generators to the solar system with a simple mechanical linkage.
40% of Ghanaians(approximately 8 million people from an estimated population of 24 million people) are without power supply. There are 2 billion people worldwide who have no power supply. Allowing for 1 KWh of power per person (allowing for increasing demands) each machine could provide power for 100 people, we would require 80,000 machines to provide for those without in Ghana. Using the same equation we would need 20 million machines worldwide before we start replacing existing uneconomic power plants.
We anticipate being able to build the machine for (£10,000-£15,000) (GH¢ 50,000 – GH¢ 75,000) (with a hundred percent profit) the cost to light Ghana would be between £800 – £1,200 million (GH¢ 4 – GH¢ 6 billion), that is the equivalent to £100 – £150 (GH¢ 500 – GH¢ 750) per person for a lifetimes supply of electricity. Worldwide the cost of producing 20 million machines would be between £200 - £300 billion (GH¢ 1,000 – GH¢ 1,500 billion), this is the same amount the UK government borrowed in 2010.
The Vat revenues alone would be worth between £140 million & £210 million (GH¢ 700 – GH¢ 1,050 million) if we light Ghana and between £35 - £52.5 billion (GH¢ 175 – GH¢ 262.5 billion) if we light the world. The United Nations, UNICEF & Carbon Offset Premiums would pay for the installation of these machines, and for the installation of Ecosan toilets and Anaerobic Digesters.
Water desalination is a very simple process if you have an abundance supply of free power. The worlds production of desalination plants are over engineered and prohibitively expensive because they don’t have a free abundant power supply.
We intend to sell the desalination plant for GH¢ 75,000, this is based on the per hectare profit of fish farming in Ghana, the projected main use of the desalination plant. As a by-product each machine would produce 102.2 tonnes of salt per annum, worth approximately GH¢ 15,000.
Each machine would generate Gh¢ 13,125 of VAT revenues. Ghana currently imports 400,000 million tonnes of fish annually therefore there is a potential for a further 175,000 extra hectares of fish farms. If half the fish farms were built where there was no fresh water supply we would require 87,000 desalination plants, bringing a further £114.78 million (GH¢ 573 million) to Ghana in VAT revenues alone.
At present Nigeria imports $4.5 billion worth of salt a year from, Brazil, European Union, Saudi Arabia & India, we urge the Ghanian Government to lobby the Nigerian Government to import its salt from Ghana and utilise an abundant natural resource and considerably reduce the need for foreign aid and enable the considerable reduction to the National Debt.
17% of Ghana's food is currently imported as foreign food aid, if for any reason this aid was withdrawn there is a potential that up to 5 million people would face the real prospect of starvation, this would make the country ungovernable and would increase the prospect of a military coup or Western intervention.
The oil reserves of Ghana are estimated to be approximately 3 billion barrels, the net worth to the Ghanian economy is worth $30 billion over ten years.
