Islamabad: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) is carefully considering a proposal to convert all of its buildings, offices, and streetlights to solar power, which will not only increase energy efficiency but also sharply lower costs.
The Capital Development Authority (CDA)’s officials reportedly assessed the suggestion during recent meetings and are now preparing to proceed in this direction.
The top officials of the civic organisation will also go through the Project-Concept (PC-I), which was created a few years ago and proposes the installation of solar panels atop tube wells and waterworks across the capital in order to generate 4.5 megawatts of electricity.
The PC-I draft demonstrated that the waterworks and tube wells can be run for the next 25 years using electricity generated by the solar system. It will cover the Rs80 million cost of system installation over the course of the first four years.
An official has stated that a consultant will be hired to find and choose the best locations for the installation of clean and green energy equipment if the request is approved.
It is important to note that despite having limited financial resources, CDA pays high monthly electricity bills for Islamabad’s over 40,000 lighting. He declared that they have successfully finished a solar project in Fatima Jinnah Park, where people may now visit in the evening without worrying about power outages. Moreover, on a 2.5 hectare (750 acre) section of the park, 3,400 solar panels have been placed.
The system provides power shortages on the main grid to offer constant power supply to this one of the major leisure attractions. Even in the evenings, people are no longer concerned about wandering through any part of the park, he claimed.
