Balochistan gets first-ever solar power generation licence from Nepra


 RECORDER REPORT  SEP 6TH, 2019  ISLAMABD

Enertech Quetta Solar has been granted a generation license by the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) on August 30th, 2019, for a 50-MW solar power project to be built on a Build, Own, Operate & Transfer (BOOT) basis in Pishin, Balochistan.

This will be the first renewable Independent Power Producer (IPP) project in 22 years to be developed in Balochistan - and thus it has a landmark status.

Enertech Holding is wholly owned by National Technology Enterprises Company (NTEC) which is a fully owned subsidiary of Kuwait Investment Authority (KIA) - the sovereign wealth fund of the State of Kuwait. KIA is one of the oldest and largest sovereign wealth funds in the world.

It is pertinent to applaud the Government of Balochistan for this achievement and important to highlight the role of Chief Minister Balochistan Jam Kamal Khan in attracting one of the most sophisticated investors to Balochistan. This will duly send a very positive message to global investors and open doors for other blue-chip investors to invest in Balochistan.

Enertech Pakistan's CEO Yasser Malik, while commenting on the achievement, said that Enertech is committed to harnessing the renewable potential of Balochistan with the goal to develop it into the Renewable Energy Hub of Pakistan. Enertech will continue to work in partnership with the Government of Balochistan on several other key strategic initiatives including energy independence, food security and infrastructure development. These initiatives will increase local employment, improve the pace of economic growth and improve socioeconomic indicators of the province.

The Government of Balochistan, led by honourable Chief Minister Jam Kamal, has been instrumental in attracting foreign investment and supporting the project on both the provincial and federal levels. These projects are in line with the Prime Minister's vision of a Green Pakistan where renewable energy will have a 30% share of total energy production by 2030.-PR

Historical relationship between Kurd and Baloch.

The Kurds are the ethnical group living in a region known as Kurdistan which is divided into Iraq, Syria, Turkey and Iran. They  are struggling for an independent region since decades and they are famous for their female guerrilla fighters.        On 25 September 2017, the referendum for an independent Kurdish region  was held in Iraq with a turn out of 72 %.   On this important occasion, the historical relation between Kurd and Baloch people is worth discussing.       When it comes to history, every nation tends to find its roots and origin. Same goes with the Baloch people. The Baloch people are always curious  about  finding their roots in history. Even if you  talk to a shepherd in Balochistan, he will be curious to talk about his  tribal or ethnical roots.      The Balochs have always conveyed the history to the next generations in different mediums like poems etc. No Baloch before 20th century had written books on  history  or origin of the Baloch nation .
