Islamabad: Pakistan Council for Renewable Energy Technologies (PCRET) will illuminate 250 houses (300 watt) with solar panel in rural areas.


More than 500 people will get indirect employment due to the activities generated in the field of rural electrification through solar energy. Around 51 scientists, engineers, technicians, skilled and semi-skilled people will also get direct employment, as PCRET has initiated production of high quality solar panels.


The objective of the project is up-gradation of silicon crystal growing and watering, cell fabrication and lamination facilities. It will help to enhance the indigenous production of solar cells and modules up to 80 KW per annum, along with promotion of clean and renewable solar energy through photovoltaic process.


Talking to this, an official in PCRET said, this project of production of solar panels has been designed to upgrade the facilities to produce 80 KW Photovoltaic modules per year.
