Consumption of electrical energy is a universally accepted indicator of progress in the agricultural, industrial and commercial sectors of an economy and is also considered a benchmark of living standards of the people of any country. No major economic activity can be sustained without adequate, cost effective and reliable supply of power. It plays a critical role in employment generation, regional development and poverty eradication. Pakistan and specifically Balochistan province is bestowed with enormous solar power potential which, if exploited in a systematic, planned and transparent manner, can ensure our energy security on long term basis in a sustainable manner.
