FAISALABAD - Use and promotion of solar energy is the only affordable solution to effectively face the energy crisis in Pakistan.
This was stated by Engineer Suhail Bin Rashid, President Faisalabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FCCI), while talking to Shafqat Ullah Butt Manager Corporate (Sales) Telsa, a solar solution company that arranged an exhibition of solar panels and other equipments in the committee room of the FCCI.
The FCCI president along with senior vice president Riaz-ul-Haq and vice president Chaudhary Muhammad Asghar visited the exhibition and discussed various issues for the extensive use of solar energy. He said that Pakistan was located in a region where sunlight was available 14-16 hours daily but we failed to fully exploit the potential. He said that solar systems were available for homes and shops which could be made more inexpensive through subsidy by the government. The government can also launch installment schemes through banks besides leasing the systems through companies. He also asked solar companies to reduce their profit.
