Alternative sources for power


Mubashir Mahmood April 16, 2010

KARACHI: Cities and towns all over the country suffer from prolonged power cuts every day. Every year we are told that there will be no more loadshedding – and the reality is that it gets worse year after year. My question is, why can we not explore alternative sources of power and energy – especially wind energy along the coastal areas? Forget actually pursuing this option, no one in any position of authority even talks about it. Why?

Jehangir Qazi | 11 years ago | Reply It's high time government should seriously realize and take some proactive and productive measures (surely to be seen on ground rather than seen only on papers) for eradication of menace of load shedding across the country. Pakistan is enriched with Coal which can be utilized to its fullest for production of electricity.
Syed A. Mateen | 11 years ago | Reply Providing electricity to people of Pakistan has become the biggest challenge. People sitting at the helm of affairs are least concerned about it, as they live in palatial houses which are 100% back up generation. What General (R) Pervez Musharraf and his PML-Q have done during their last eight and half years rule? They have not been able to do any thing, except that they added miseries for the people of Pakistan. Please do not expect that the sitting government is going to do any thing in this regard. Federal Minister for Electricity and Power Raja Pervez Ashraf is the biggest liar on earth. He is the one who keep on changing his targets of achieving his own goals. Providing uninterrupted electricity in the country was more important than signing the 18th Amendment. But who is going to tell to the rulers how to assign the priorities?
