Pakistan’s first alternative energy park begins producing 1250 W

For the first time in the country’s history, a public park being run on alternate energy is being opened in Karachi.

Situated at the Shaheed Lalak Jan Green Belt near Hyderi in North Nazimabad, the Alternate Energy Education Model Park is already running a wind turbine, a solar unit and a hydel installation, which in all generate a total of 1250 watts. The resulting energy will be used to light up the park, which will remain open after sunset.

According to the stipulated plan, the park will also provide schoolchildren with an opportunity to sow saplings in its greenbelt and educate them about the importance of conservation. The News
