  1. A very concise yet informative article. Its an impressive take by Govt. of Punjab. Hope it gets materialised in shorter period of time. Further to that the pitch for opting solar panels is quite justified and need of the hour. For someone who is residing in Melboure (the world’s nost liveable city) I can confirm how solar panels have revolutionised the power sector here especially for domestic consumers. Governments both at federal and state levels encourage people to opt for it and provide opportunities for people to acquire the technology on very convenient and affordable instalments. Hope we too get similar culture established here in Pakistan soon.
