Punjab govt plans to distribute solar panels among traders

The Punjab government has prepared a plan to distribute solar energy panels among traders and industrialists to overcome the energy crisis and win public support in the run up to the forthcoming general elections.

Sources said initially 50 solar energy panels were imported. “After reviewing their utility and getting a positive report about their usefulness, the government has decided to import solar energy panels on a large scale and provide them to traders and industrialists at subsidised prices,” they added.

The sources said the provincial government was planning to provide solar energy panels to the cottage industry, farmers and small traders in the first phase. “In the second phase, these panels will also be provided to the general public. All these proposals have got positive feedback but no final decision has been taken so far,” the sources added.
