Solar Energy Systems in Pakistan: Dark nights of Thar about to light up 38


THARPARKAR: Mohammed Yousuf Memon, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Alternative Energy Development Board (AEDB), has said a positive change is about to come in the life of the people of Tharparkar as dark nights of Thar are going to light up with the execution of a rural electrification project.
He directed Dr Riazuddin Abro, Project Director, Sindh, to ensure sustainability of the Solar Home Systems (SHS) as installed through the AEDB at district Tharparkar. The AEDB has so far completed 1,048 SHS in 20 villages of Mithi Taluka, including Cheechari, Godangri, Doonjh, Peeloro, Pio/Qombotio, Godhio, Lanja, Sonath, Chachi Dhoni, Aqib Junejo, Chorel, Sohrab Junejo, Wadhan, Manjithi, Ali Muhammad Lanja, Jaroonbhri, Kangeni and Unri. Whereas the installation work of 159 SHS is under progress in the villages of Mehari and Sujaveri.

Meanwhile, PD Sindh, Dr Riazuddin Abro, visited the villages of Mithi Taluka on Thursday and advised team members to resolve the technical problems related with the SHS on a priority basis so that the people of Tharparkar district could be benefited from this very pioneer electrification project.

The project, named as the Rural Electrification Project (REP), is working under the Federal Ministry of Water and Power. A total of 3,000 solar home systems are approved for all the four talukas of Tharparkar in the first term, including 1,048 SHS in Mithi, 452 SHS in Diplo, 967 SHS in Chachro and 533 SHS in Nangarparkar. The maintenance and sustainability of the system is dependent directly on regular payments of monthly charges and full cooperation with recovery officials.

Abro said the system provided light through energy-savers (CFLs) and LEDs along with half point for charging batteries of telephone sets. By dint of such a blessing, he added, the people of Thar are now expecting a positive change in their life.

          @shafqat mehmood,
          I WOULD BE ABLE TO REPLY YOUR QUESTION AFTER RECEIVING FOLLOWING INFORMATION:
          -OPERATION TIME OF FANS,
          -SPACE THE AC IS REQUIRED TO COOL AND -THE TWO EXTREME TEMPERATURES I.E.DESIRED TEMPERATURE IN THE ROOM AND OUT SIDE TEMPERATURE
          -HRS OF OPERATION OF THE AC
          -DYNAMIC, STATIC HEADS OF PUMP
          -DIAMETERS OF THE PIPES USED WITH THE PUMP
          -SOURCE OF WATER
          -GALLONS OF WATER REQUIRED TO BE PUMPED

          -PUMP POWER RATING
          -CAPACITY OF REFRIGERATOR
          – POWER CONSUMPTION OF THE REFRIGERATOR AND FREEZER;
          -WATTAGE OF THE TUBE LIGHTS AND THE -TIME YOU REQUIRE THEM TO OPERATE / DAY
          -AUTONOMY OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM (THE -NUMBER OF CLOUDY/ RAINY DAYS YOU DESIRE THE SYSTEM TO OPERATE THE ELECTRIC GADGETS MENTIONED ABOVE).
          -YOU MIGHT SAY THAT IT IS TOO MUCH OF THE INFORMATION I AM ASKING , BUT YOU NEED TO REALIZE THAT WE WANT TO DESIGN A SUSTAINABLE SYSTEM FOR YOU.
          -YOU ALSO NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT SOLAR SYSTEM ARE NOT CHEAP. EVEN OVER 20 YEARS OF USUAL LIFE-SPAN, A SOLAR SYSTEM IS MUCH COSTLIER AS COMPARED TO GRID CONNECTED ELECTRICITY.
          – THE PRESENT DAY COST PER UNIT OF ELECTRICITY FROM THE SOLAR PV IS ABOUT 6-7 TIMES THE COST OF ELECTRICITY FROM WAPDA (10 RS A UNIT
          -sOLAR SYSTEMS GIVE CHEAPER SOLURTION FOR PLACES WHICH ARE FAR AWAY FROM THE GRID. IN THIS CASE WE DO CONSIDER THE GRID EXTENSION COST AS WELL. WHEN GRID ALREADY EXISTS, LIKE YOUR CASE IN LAHORE, IT IS NOT A COMPATIBLE OPTION. HOWEVER WHEN YOU WANT TO HAVE A SOLUTION FOR LOADSHEDDING HOURS AND DO NOT MIND PAYING 60 – 70 RS PER UNIT COST, IT IS A VIABLE SOLUTION.

    Dear Friends
    So far I have not been able to get required information. I have contacted many parties claiming to provide solar systems in Pakistan but there was no adequate response from them. I think still these systems are very expensive and those companies want to work for the government only. Anyway whenever I have some useful information in this regard, it will be posted here.
    Regards
