LAHORE: Chief Minister Usman Buzdar says electricity-deprived areas of Cholistan, Thal and Koh-i-Suleman will be electrified with solar energy and this facility will be extended to hundreds of villages in phases.
Chairing a meeting here on Thursday, the chief minister gave approval in-principle to convert backward areas’ mosques on solar energy in phases.
The chief minister will inaugurate the first off-grid solution (solar energy) project next month. Mr Buzdar said the facility would ease the daily life of people living in remote and far-flung areas and added that the government was working to produce affordable electricity.
