ISLAMABAD, Mar 21 (APP): A gigantic project to solarize 252 tubewells in various parts of Balochistan is in full momentum to provide uninterrupted power supply to residents as well as overcome the line losses.

“Initiated 1.5 years back and Alhamdulillah now being done and giving service. Changing of government and community tube wells from diesel and electricity to solar power,” Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan said on Twitter.

In first phase, the government would solarize 252 existing water supply schemes, the chief minister said as he inaugurated a scheme in Shakerzai Syedan locality. The scheme cost around Rs 7.6 million to complete.

Similarly, water schemes in Chaghi, Jaffarbad, Kharan, Lasbella, Loralai, Naseerabad, Pashin, Quetta, Sibi, Suhbat Pur, Zhob and Ziarat loaclities would also be solarized.

Most of the said schemes are nearing completion.

At inauguration ceremony, the authorities concerned told chief minister that around 598,540 people would benefit from the scheme.

Addressing the event, Jam Kamal said the project’s objective was not just to supply water rather it would also bring prosperity to the area.

He said the government, which executed the projects to increase their figures or just to give away contracts, could not work.

He said unfortunately, the same tendency prevailed the previous governments which executed projects without any proper homework.

Solar Geysers

Similarly, the Balochistan government is providing solar geysers to cold areas, which currently use woods or gas for heating.

“This shall Inshallah revolutionize cold areas of Balochistan. We are putting solar geysers in far flung cold areas of Balochistan who buy wood and do heating,” he said

He said the installation of solar geysers would change their lives altogether.
“A new start – zero bill of wood, gas and fuel,” he remarked on Twitter
