Punjab Govt to Provide 1KV Solar Systems to 50K Homes


Lahore: Punjab Chief Minister Maryam Nawaz Sharif has announced a groundbreaking initiative to provide 1-kilowatt (1KV) solar systems to 50,000 households across Punjab. This move comes as an alternative to expensive electricity, aiming to alleviate the burden on the common man. The program, titled “Light without Electricity Bill: Chief Minister’s Roshan Punjab Program,” aims to empower low-income families by offering them solar solutions.

In a special meeting, CM Maryam Nawaz Sharif emphasized the importance of this initiative in freeing the poor from the escalating costs of electricity. The program will initially benefit protected consumers using up to 100 units of electricity in the first phase. Each 1KV solar system includes two solar panels, a battery, inverter, and wires, providing up to 16 hours of backup.

The CM stressed the use of the latest technology and high-quality components such as solar panels, inverters, and batteries to ensure optimal performance and longevity. This initiative marks a significant step towards sustainable energy solutions and economic relief for households in Punjab.
