After evaluating the situation of the energy crisis in the country from the last few years, it seems that frequent load shedding and high electricity bills are destined for the fate of Pakistani nation. The pay lip services of government and high prices of generators had made the situation more troublesome and extremely disappointed.
At this situation, the need of cheap and high-quality system was felt and solar panels emerged out as the best alternative to traditional generators and expensive UPS systems. Government and public sector considered the benefits of solar energy and took initiatives for implanting solar power plants in Pakistan.
The climatic conditions are very suitable for generating solar energy while the Alternative energy board states that Pakistan receives 2MW/m2 radiation and 3000 hours of sunlight annually. Quaid-e-Azam solar park established to reduce the country’s dependence on one energy source. The solar park has the capacity to produce 1,000MW energy and it’s under construction in Bahawalpur where electricity shortage has made the livelihood of people really pitiful.
With the help China, solar power plants in Pakistan are installed in Pakistan Parliament that has the capacity of generating 1.2MW electricity. Similarly, another solar power plant is under construction in Bahawalpur aiming to produce 50MW electricity to accomplish the domestic needs. Scatec solar project in Sindh, Roshan Power Solar in Kasur, andBakhsh Energy Solar have the capacity to produce 150MW, 10MW, and 20MW electricity respectively.
It’s unjust to neglect the sincere efforts of the private sector in catering the needs of existing domestic and industrial issues. Premier Energy imports solar panels, solar inverters, solar batteries and solar UPS from renowned international brands and encourages the customers to opt solar power due to the various benefits of it.
