“In diesel terms, it pays for itself in less than three years. In effect, the electricity it produces after three years is almost at no cost”.

“Because it is not emitting any greenhouses gases that diesel generators do, it has the potential to earn carbon credits which are currently priced at $40/ton.

“Based on estimated annual production of 2,307,000 KiloWatt hours per year, we can expect to earn nearly $39,589 in carbon credits per year.”

Obasanjo said the idea that capital is selfish fails to understand the fundamentals of nature and that green, not greed, is good.
