Your investment - a powerhouse of growth


Over the past few years, we have offered investors the opportunity to invest in the booming solar and renewable energy sector via the Bright Light Solar VCC Ltd s12J investment structure.

We carefully vet and invest in companies embarking on extended renewable energy projects, allowing us to limit downside risk, while taking advantage of stable long-term high-yielding energy assets.

In turn, our investors receive predictable inflation-adjusted cash flows from these projects, in the form of dividends on a semi-annual basis, net of all fees and relevant taxes.

on existing S12 Investments
