According to State Radio, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif unveiled a plan on Tuesday to convert 100,000 agricultural tubewells nationwide to solar power.

At the Islamabad launch event, the premier declared that Pakistan’s agricultural industry is one that will boost its economy.

In order to develop the agriculture sector, the premier claimed that it is necessary to assist farmers by giving them access to high-quality seeds, affordable fertilizer, and electricity.

Sharif emphasized the necessity of affordable electricity, stating that every sector of the economy—whether it be industry or agriculture—needs it. He claimed that solar energy could be extremely helpful in lowering the price of electricity.

He claimed that the polarization of tubewells project would bring about a revolution in the nation’s agricultural industry.

Bashir Cheema, the minister for national food security, also spoke at the event and emphasized the significance of initiatives like solarizing tubewells for farmers.

In accordance with this project, 100,000 tubewells will be solarized within three years with the help of the federal and provincial governments, according to Federal Secretary for National Food Security Zafar Hussain.
