Alternative solutions to power


Express April 29, 2010

ISLAMABAD: President Asif Ali Zardari gave directions for the early adoption and utilisation of modern solar and geothermal technologies to meet the energy needs of the country.

During a briefing on alternate energy sources at Aiwan-e-Sadr, Zardari said gas and electricity geysers will eventually be phased out. He said the government will save gas in winters for better consumption by this method.

The meeting was also informed that another 200mw of power generated from wind energy will be added to the national grid by the end of this year.

Syed A. Mateen | 11 years ago | Reply People curse General (R) Pervez Musharraf for not adding a single kilowatt during his eight and half years rule. What PPP government was doing on this subject during the last two years? I am confident that until I will breathe last, no government is going to solve the electricity issue. The first gift which PPP government gave to the people of Pakistan was inflated electricity tariff. In near future the IMF guy is coming to dictate his terms to revise the electricity tariff upwards. It makes no difference for the corrupt government servants who earn illegal gratification. But it really makes all the difference for the honest people of Pakistan, who are now unable to meet their end needs. There is no light at the end of the tunnel in any government.
