The Din Energy Pvt. Limited inaugurated Wind Power Station in Jhimpir. According to details, the cost of this project is $65 million USD.

Moreover, 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.

Reducing Pakistan’s dependence on non-renewable energy

In March, 2020 an initiative of eleven wind projects with cumulative capacity of 660MW was taken by the Alternative Energy Development Board (AEDB), which officially started executing since December, 2021.

The projects included in the initiative are 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.

Additionally, 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 were also part of the project.

Similarly, after the successful power generation of around 1,233.37MW from the previously installed wind power stations these projects would also add to the clean and green energy supply in Pakistan. Moreover, this alternative energy resources project would help Pakistan reduce its dependence upon hydro and fossil fuel power generation. Similarly, wind power in Pakistan has the potential to generate up to 50,000MW in the form of free, eco-friendly and efficient source of energy.

Furthermore, the Alternative Energy Development Board’s new policy of “Alternative and Renewable Energy 2019” focus on creating a conducive environment for renewable energy and sustainable growth in Pakistan. This would further address the country’s economic security, environmental protection, and sustainable energy concerns.
