Pakistan to have first on-grid solar electricity generation system 15


The Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) is all set to establish first on-grid solar electricity generation system in the country during the current year to overcome energy crisis.

“This solar system and smart grid is becoming a reality in less than a year,” said PEC Chairperson Senator Rukhsana Zuberi, addressing a press conference Saturday.

She said the smart-grid system could make Pakistan self-sufficient in energy, as the country was rich in renewable energy resources, especially solar energy.

Harnessing such environmentally clean resources will save foreign exchange, create opportunities of billions of dollars for small investors and provide jobs, which are much needed for Pakistan’s job starved market,” she added.

She said the excess electricity produced would be added to the national grid through a smart meter.

She said the Islamabad Electric Supply Company (IESCO) had agreed to buy excess electricity on mutual decided tariff.

She said the government of Japan had extended a grant of 480 million yen to Pakistan under clean earth programme.

Two solar electricity generation systems of 180 KW each would be installed at the PEC and the Planning Commission for which the PEC was an implementing partner. She said the solar system would convert six-storey PEC building in the federal capital on solar energy by February 2012.

She termed the present energy crises as a mega opportunity to open tremendous jobs and business opportunities for every countryman. She said the promotion of solar energy utilisation would bring plenty of jobs, business and investment opportunities for all the professionals.

She said ,”People can get their solar energy system connected with smart grid and produce electricity which can be used for domestic purpose and extra power may be transferred to the main grid which will generate income”.

We should encourage the people to put solar panels at rooftops of houses, connect them to the grid, make profit by selling electricity as well as reduce energy bills upto zero level. app

    Pakistan’s best friend & neighbour China has offered electricity at cheaper & affordable rates to Pakistan a no of times. China also agrees to monitor the present power generation/supply sector in Pakistan & remove all the technical errors coming in the way of production/supply. Plus China also offers to improve the power generation from present figure of 19000 megawatt & make its production/supply economical. But sorry to say that this is one of the sectors where corruption stands legalised. Unless Nang E Millat Nang E Deen Nang E Watan lobby of sold out political filth doesn’t leave Pakistan’s ruling sector any betterment in this sector is a dream.
