Pakistan, being on the Sun Belt, is highly suitable for generation of electricity through solar.
Global irradiation falling on the horizontal surface is about 1,800-2,200 kWh/m2 per year. At current e ciency levels of 18% for solar modules this is su cient to produce 0.320 to 0.400 MWh of electricity per m2 per year
With huge availability of sunlight, Sindh holds a great potential for extensive exploitation of solar energy for not only agriculture but also for the extensive use of environmental-friendly alternative energy for households.
Sindh according to the wind date gathered by the Pakistan Meteoro- logical Department (MET Department), the coastal belt of Sindh has huge potential for the development of wind energy projects.
The ‘wind corridor’ of Sindh stretches from Keti Bandar to Gharo and is capable of producing 50,000 MW of electricity.
