Solar panels in Lahore

Published on 15th February 2013.

Power downtimes are normal in Pakistan where the national grid supplies for about 12 hours daily. Summer temperatures in Lahore rise to over 40°C, so one can imagine the difficult conditions for living and learning at the City’s Oblate house of studies. Students and staff rely on candles, oil lamps and torches for much of the time.

This year MDO provided €8,400 for the purchase and installation of solar panels that will generate 2500 watts of electricity, enough to bridge the supply gap and allow them to run fans, computers, a printer, light bulbs and a TV — all at the same time.
