There is increasing hours of load shedding, this has caused major hindrances in day to activities for households and businesses. This situation has no signs of improvement in the near future as well; owing to the expenses of large scale hydro projects. Thus adoption of renewable source of energy is far more economic and efficient.
The current consumer behavior is focused on switching towards renewable energy. Thus being a nationally manufactured Storage Batteries, reducing the cost while improving performance is a priority. Hence a new collaboration has been initiated.
