Germany already produces 20% of its electricity from alternative sources including solar :
Brazil is going big for wind power :
But people says solar energy is quite costly for domestic users
The next big thing for clean energy is nuclear fusion (not the fission) which great minds of the world are working hard to build the technology for.
Thousands of worshipers, students and community members have benefited from solar-powered geysers and water pumps installed in mosques, schools and health facilities in the militancy-affected Swat, officials told Dawn on Thursday.
A total of 314 mosques in Swat district have got geysers running on solar energy and over 30 solar power based water pumps under the UNDP-funded `Peace and Development Programme`, according to a spokesman for Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA).“This is our first winter that we have warm water for ablutions,” Adil Shah, caretaker of `Allah O` Akbar` Mosque, Muhallah Dehrian, Charbagh in Swat, told Dawn on telephone.
He, however, said the facility had not been `very effective` due to shorter sunlight hours these days.

in bangladesh they are utilising in most of the villages, i always think why in pak, where we have sun, is anyone put some remarks...are solar panels are expensive or hard to find or hard to install or govt policies....in one exhibition, one company from china (guanjoo) told me they are selling solar panels to pak..
jitni dhoop Pakistan mein hoti hai , agar european countries mein ho to sirf dhoop se hi electricity paida karen..
We are having in australia having them install, i dont understand why we are not having them in big cities, like lahore, karachi,islamabad. We are having problems with loadsheddng for long time.
I know it is expensive but you imagine, how much you wasting anyways because no business because of light, so even for small business, they can have them install and save their business, like DARZi, which required only 12volt motor to run its machine. So even small panels is enough for them.
China is our next door, everywhere in the world people buying from china. We should think about it seriously, do not depend on Govt, Govt cant look after themselves how they going to address our issues.
It will soon be common in Pakistan not because of govt. wisdom and efforts but as an outcome of energy crisis. I saw on TV a feudal man from Gujranwala district running his tubewell, AC, and all household energy utilities on solar penals, he bought from China. It is not the cost but mindset (like mobiles) to replace current energy supply system with solar energy. Govt. will obviously dicourage such development as it would loss revenew which is billions of rupees and the efficacy of power generating and regulating departments -PEPCO, WAPDA, LESCO bla bla bla. However I hope there is no law to prohibit such intallation.
The solar panel system has been introduced even in the UK with little hours of sunlight, and without the installing the mechanism to store or save the enery to be used at night time, such as the UPS working in Pakistan. Rarther the myth here is that there is no such system exists whatsoever, to store energy. Here people need to keep intact the formal energy supply as well. God has blessed Pakistan withh all the opportunities but mismanagement and vested interests pervail over national interests. May God bless us with wisdom and honesty, too.
