Solar Minigrids in Pakistan

Solar Minigrids in Pakistan
  • Project: Enhar assists design and deployment of renewable minigrids in rural Pakistan

Enhar assisted Indus Earth Trust to design and develop Solar minigrids in four villages in Sindh, Pakistan.

The villages are low income communities, three of which have never had access to grid power - this is  commonplace in rural  Pakistan. Over half of the rural popultion rely on kerosene lanterns and candles for light and must travel to nearby towns to recharge mobile phones.  The World Bank provided funding to the Pakistan Poverty Alleviation Fund to create pilot projects which could be replicated throughout rural regions of Pakistan. Indus Earth Trust was appointed as Partner Organisation to implement the pilot, who also engaged Enhar to assist with the project design.

This project, called "Just Light is Not Enough" is implementing high-quality solar panels, inverters and batteries to create a mini energy utility which is operated by the community. LED lights and USB mobile phone chargers are installed in all residences and 240V power sockets in selected local businesses. Meters for each business and residential cluster enable billing and revenue raising for ongoing maintenance costs.

Enhar consultant Demian Natakhan was also engaged by the Pakistan Poverty Alleviation Fund to provide a report on energy access in rural Sindh which will be used to leverage the pilot project learnings to support wider uptake of renewable minigrid solutions in regions without access to the main grid.
