Karachi—Reon Energy Limited, the leading solar energy company in Pakistan has successfully delivered a 5.5kWp Off-Grid Solar Solution for Jam Ghulam Qadir Hospital at Hub. The project has been sponsored by HUBCO and will provide 24-hour power access to the emergency and labor rooms at the hospital. “The emergency room at this hospital caters to more than 1500 people every month, whilst more than 240 maternity cases are managed every month at this facility. The solar solution is currently running 25 bulbs, 12 fans and other devices,” said Dr. Abbas Lasi, one of the key officials at the hospital.
This solar solution, aside from bringing energy security and availability to areas where there is none, will also result in cost savings for the hospital.

Solar energy solutions can help transform the quality of health care at an institutional level, especially for those residing in the off-grid areas of Pakistan.”
