WHAT IS THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING SOLAR POWER IN PAKISTAN?? IN PAKISTAN, ABOUT 70% OF THE POPULATION LIVES IN SOME 50,000 VILLAGES DISPERSED AROUND THE COUNTRY. MANY OF THESE VILLAGES ARE FAR FROM THE MAIN TRANSMISSION LINES OF THE NATIONAL GRID BECAUSE OF THEIR RELATIVELY SMALL POPULATIONS. IT IS NOT USUALLY ECONOMICALLY VIABLE TO CONNECT THESE VILLAGES TO THE GRID.

SOLAR ENERGY HAS GREAT POTENTIAL IN AREAS OF PAKISTAN THAT RECEIVE HIGH SOLAR RADIATION THROUGHOUT THEYEAR. FOR EG. 19 MEGA JOULES OF SOLAR ENERGY PER SQUARE METRE, IS RECEIVED BY THE COUNTRY EVERYDAY THE NATION WIDE AVERAGE IS 5.5KWH/METRE SQ./DAY Enough energy potential for solar energy because there are 250-300 sunny days per year. Continuous cloudy days are rare.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
