Solar parks to provide free electricity to consumers

The government of Sindh is planning to set up solar parks in different areas of the province to provide free electricity to consumers with less than 100 units consumption per month. This was revealed by Minister of Energy and Development & Planning Sindh Syed Nasir Hussain Shah.

These solar parks are being constructed in Karachi and Jamshoro. The National Grid will be supplied with electricity from the solar parks and subsidy will be given to consumers who consume up to 100 units of electricity in the first phase.

It was decided in the meeting with the K Electric that previous electricity bills of the customers using less units should be ignored and their electricity should be restored according to the current bill.

This will not only provide relief to the people with minimum electricity usage but will also help provide electricity to the national grid. It has been decided that in the first phase of the project 4 solar parks will be set up in different parts of Sindh.
