Tube wells: Senator suggests shift to solar energy




ISLAMABAD: The Senate Standing Committee on Water and Power on Monday urged the authorities to shift Balochistan’s tube wells to solar energy.

A meeting of the committee, chaired by Senator Iqbal Zafar Jhagra, was apprised by Senator Mir Kabeer Ahmad Muhammad Shah that in several areas feeders were over-loaded, resulting in tripping and power suspension. He suggested that tube wells in the province should be run on solar system.
