Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

In a surprising turn of events, the Solar Panel Costs in Pakistan has plummeted to Rs. 37 per Watt, marking a substantial reduction from the Rs. 80 per Watt recorded in 2022.

This drop in prices can be attributed to an oversupply situation within the local market coupled with a downward trajectory in international rates, resulting in a significant decrease of nearly 30% over the past six months alone, making panels from various brands accessible at approximately Rs. 37 per Watt.

As a consequence of this decline, the expense of a 5kW solar power system has diminished by Rs. 215,000, contributing to an overall reduction of Rs. 430,000 for a 5kW system.

Despite these alterations, the pricing for inverters and batteries has remained consistent.

Moreover, this development comes on the heels of a recent proposal by the Central Power Purchasing Agency (CPPA-G) to levy a tax on both residential and commercial solar power consumers, suggesting a fixed tax rate of Rs. 2,000 per kilowatt for such users.

However, the Power Division swiftly refuted claims of imposing a fixed tax on solar power consumers, although it did not contest reports suggesting a revision in the buyback rates for net metering electricity, proposing a reduction from the current Rs. 21 to Rs. 11 per unit.
