Micro-hydropower Plants

The economy of Pakistan based largely on agriculture and depends heavily on reliable electricity supply. The program will install renewable energy power plants and it include the construction of 1,000 micro-hydropower plants in off-grid areas of KPK.
This program will also install rooftop solar plants for 23,000 schools and over 2,500 healthcare facilities in two provinces and a university in Bahawalpur, Punjab. The micro-hydropower plants and solar energy will provide electricity to around 1.5 million people in these areas of Pakistan.
The loan is part of ADB’s commitment announced last year to double it’s annual climate financing to $6 billion for Asia-Pacific by 2020. $16 million will be dedicated for climate change adaptation activities and $247 million is for climate changes mitigation activities and it include the construction of 1,000 micro-hydropower plants in off-grid areas of KPK.
