Prime Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif says National Solar Energy Initiative will provide massive relief to people and save precious foreign exchange.
In a tweet, the Prime Minister said as part of the plan to generate ten thousand megawatts solar power, the government has decided to call pre-bid conference of all stakeholders next week.
He said government buildings and tube wells running on diesel will be shifted to solar.
Shehbaz Sharif said power plants operating on diesel, coal and furnace oil will be partially replaced.
He said a major chunk of electricity is produced from imported fuel whose prices have gone up in recent months.
The Prime Minister said National Solar Energy Initiative is aimed at substituting costly energy with cheap solar power.
