Solar Power Carbon Offset Project

Spread the word

Solar power projects have the potential that to save burning of millions of tonnes of fossil fuels each year, especially coal. They produce renewable energy to power homes and industry, keeping greenhouse gasses out of the atmosphere.

There is a growing demand for energy, and solar power can drive a low carbon future and boost local economic development, stimulating climate skills technology in developing countries.

This is a certified project and generates carbon credit certificates which are issued by the Gold Standard Registry, Verra and other international registries. Certified projects must meet rigorous certification standards. This ensures that they deliver genuine emission reductions and long-term sustainable development through linking to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals

You can now purchase offsets through the Institute. Upon purchase, you will be issued with a certificate with the amount of tonnes of carbon credits and their serial numbers which may be verified on the Verra, Gold Standard or other registry.

The Climate Change Institute is a name you can trust. We also provide an emission reduction program and GHG accounting tutorials.

SOLUTION

To replace thermal and fossil fuel-based energy, these projects install a solar power facility in areas that can harness sunshine effectively. They reduce the emissions of harmful greenhouse gases, instead exporting clean and renewable energy to the grid. Projects assist to reduce emissions in developing counties and help achieve progressive environmental and economic targets by increasing solar energy capacity.

IMPACT

Solar energy projects reduce a developing country’s reliance on carbon-intensive energy sources and boosts local economies by providing job and training opportunities. As well as these direct benefits, the project funds a number of additional initiatives for local communities: installing solar street lights, giving solar lamps to local families and upgrading facilities such as schools and health clinics to ensure 24×7 uninterrupted access to electricity.

OUTCOME

These projects makes a significant contribution to climate action globally by reducing the amount of greenhouse gas emissions in conventional electricity generation. They can boost local small economies, create steady jobs and stimulate renewable energy technology in developing countries.

Verification

The Gold Standard Registry issues carbon credits, each is equivalent to one tonne of CO2e. It is the central repository for all information and documentation relating to Gold Standard projects and units. The Registry also ensures the uniqueness of projects and credits in the system. Projects are subject to a rigorous verification process where transparency underpins the positive outcomes of the carbon projects it certifies.

Verra carbon credits are issued under the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) Program, the world’s leading greenhouse gas (GHG) crediting program.

VCS projects have reduced or removed nearly one billion tons of carbon from the atmosphere and drives finance toward activities that reduce and remove emissions, improve livelihoods, and protect nature.
