The approved solar system, provided with the support of the World Bank, will enable users to power a fan and three LED bulbs. According to the Director of Sindh Solar Energy, 6,656 solar systems will be distributed in each district of the province. The project is expected to commence in October this year.

The solar system package includes solar panels, a charge controller, and a battery. Once the procurement process is complete, distribution will begin in October. The World Bank has allocated $320 million for the project, with the possibility of further expansion.

Notably, Sindh is already generating 400 megawatts of electricity through solar energy. This initiative marks a significant step towards promoting renewable energy and reducing reliance on conventional power sources.

Eligible consumers can register for the scheme by sending their bill reference number and ID card number to 8800. The Sindh government’s innovative approach is set to bring affordable and sustainable energy to thousands of households, paving the way for a brighter future.
