Solar energy

It is good to note that the Punjab Government is utilizing all sources for power generation not only for meeting its own requirements but also making substantial contribution to the national grid through completion of more and more power plants It is an established bitter fact that large number of schools particularly in the districts in South Punjab are somewhat inadequately electrified. According to the reports, the provincial government has taken quite commendable decision to use the solar energy technology for brightening of over 20 thousand government schools situated in remote areas through provision of solar panels under the innovative Khadam-e-Punjab Ujala Programme which is to be implemented in a phased manner. Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif who reviewed Ujala Programme progress the other day said that the first phase of this programme will start from South Punjab and almost eleven thousand schools will be equipped with solar energy. According to the reports, the CM reiterated that the provision of the best possible educational atmosphere to the students is the priority of the government and provision of solar energy is a step forward in that direction. Quite obviously the enlightening of such a large number of government schools with solar energy will go a long way in providing a conducive atmosphere to the large number of students will greatly help in improving educational environment. By educating the youth in this way, the provincial government is making quite purposeful and beneficial investment. Launching of the innovative Ujala Programme and undertaking various measures to utilize solar energy purposefully is quite appreciable and yet another positive step being taken by the provincial government to provide basic and essential facilities to the people.
