The Pakistan Parliament has become the first ever to run entirely on solar power. With the increasing use of natural resources and the depleting reserves, using renewable energy has become very important. This achievement by the Pakistani Parliament is a highly commendable job
This was supported by China with a funding of USD 55 million. Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said that other institutes, private and public need to follow this.
He also said that this was a display of the friendly relation between Pakistan and China. The solar panels will generate 80 MW power, which is more than enough of what the parliament needs. The extra power will be given to the national grid.
