In an effort to generate pure energy and lessen the stress on the national grid, Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) has begun construction on the city’s first solar park. This will be one of Karachi’s first solar parks and was constructed in a busy neighborhood.
The first-ever solar park idea was officially launched by Barrister Murtaza Wahab, administrator of the Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC). It took place in Karachi’s Kidney Hills park.
In this case, Barrister Murtaza Wahab tweeted that KMC has started working on a project that has the potential to produce a significant quantity of electricity, up to 100 Kilowatts.
Barrister Murtaza Wahab tweeted, “The project would help KMC produce clean energy which will then be set off for paying the electricity bill of street lighting in KMC controlled regions.
In a statement to the media, Wahab predicted that the project would be operational in a few months and even mentioned that the first phase of planning was nearing its conclusion. Once operational, this solar park will produce 100 kW of power.
Details indicate that this solar park will generate 100 kilowatts of electricity for a monthly cost of 5 million rupees. The solar farm’s electricity production will be utilized to power traffic lights and streetlights, reducing government expenses and moving Pakistan closer to a sustainable and environmentally friendly future.
The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) disclosed that it has plans to convert all airports nationwide to solar energy, improving the system. Additionally, it has been requested of the necessary authorities to develop a workable plan that will aid in the conversion of Karachi’s Jinnah International Airport to solar power.
