The Pakistan Engineering Council has set up an on-grid solar power generation project with a capacity of 178 KiloWatts (KW), setting precedence as a role model for defining procedures and strategy at the national level for on-grid solar power generation.
This project is first of its kind in the country. The excess electricity will be delivered to the national grid under a Feed-In-Tariff regime.
An official said the government plans to illuminate 250 houses with solar panels in rural areas. The Pakistan Council of Renewable Energy Technologies (PCRET) has initiated production of high quality solar panels. This will help promote clean and renewable energy sources.
