The world is focusing on clean, green and cheap sources of energy. One hour of sunlight is equivalent to one year’s worth of energy for the planet. Solar energy is harvested by capturing light for direct photovoltaic conversion into electricity.
Attock Oil Group of Companies started its journey in renewable energy sector under the name of Attock Solar (Pvt.) Ltd. in 2015. Starting from full scale R&D and manufacturing under ASPL umbrella, now Attock Energy (Pvt.) Ltd. has entered into EPC contracting. From site survey to civil work to PV plant set-up, testing and commissioning and O&M, AEPL has expanded rather slowly but widely. AEPL also provides consultation services in the renewable energy sector.
