Harnessing solar power for Swat


Express April 08, 2010

SWAT: Some 20 houses in Shamizai area of Parai village in Swat are being powered by solar energy. The project was masterminded and engineered by the Pakistan Army.

“These people had no hope of getting electricity for the rest of their lives,” Colonel Aziz, in-charge of the Operation Shamozai told The Express Tribune. “We have also installed 15 street lights on the Parai road. One such streetlight costs around Rs 45,000 but the army gifted it to the locals.”
