The Din Energy Limited inaugurated Wind Power Station in Jhimpir costing $65 million.
The power plant has the capacity to produce 50 MW (4.7 cents/Unit) of clean and green electricity. Interestingly, this is the cheapest power project in Pakistan as it will cost 4.7 US cents/unit.
In March, 2020 an initiative of eleven wind projects with a cumulative capacity of 660MW was taken by the Alternative Energy Development Board (AEDB), which officially started executing since December, 2021.
50MW Indus Wind Energy Ltd, 50MW Master Green Energy Ltd, 50MW ACT2 Wind Pvt Ltd, 50MW Liberty Wind Power 2 Pvt Ltd, 60MW Metro Wind Power Ltd, 50MW Masda Green Energy Pvt Ltd, 50MW DIN Energy Ltd, and 50MW Gul Ahmed Electric Ltd are among the projects featured in the program.
The project also included 50MW Master Green Energy Ltd, 50MW Tricom Wind Power Pvt Ltd, 50MW Lakeside Energy Pvt Ltd, 50MW Artistic Wind Power Ltd, and 50MW Liberty Wind Power 1 Pvt Ltd.
These projects will contribute to Pakistan’s clean and green energy supply after the successful generation of roughly 1,233.37 MW from previously established wind energy plants.
This alternative energy resources project would also assist Pakistan in reducing its reliance on hydro and fossil fuel power generation. In Pakistan, wind power has the potential to generate up to 50,000MW as a free, environmentally beneficial, and efficient source of energy.
Furthermore, the Alternative Energy Development Board’s new strategy, “Alternative and Renewable Energy 2019,” focuses on building an environment in Pakistan that is favorable to renewable energy and long-term growth. This would answer the country’s worries about economic security, environmental protection, and long-term energy supply.
