Islamabad: To produce 4.5 megawatts of electricity, the Capital Development Authority (CDA) has planned to install solar panels above its tube wells and waterworks in various locations of the Federal Capital.
The solar-generated electricity will be utilized to power the waterworks and tube wells and contribute to the national grid.
According to a news statement issued by the CDA on Tuesday, PC-1 for the solar system, worth Rs 80 million, has been developed and will be sent for approval shortly.
Upon being contacted, the Deputy Director General (DG) water management, Sardar Khan Zimri stated that the solar system would produce electricity for 25 years post-installation.
He further stated that it would cover the Rs 80 million cost of the system’s setup in the first four years.
This project will offer 100 million gallons of water per day to Rawalpindi and Islamabad when completed. Moreover, the CDA estimated that Rs 77 billion will be required for the project in 2017.
