Chinese Solar Company’s Investment in Punjab

In Punjab there are plans to build a new solar panel manufacturing plant that would help boost the state’s renewable energy infrastructure. These steps are a major step towards developing the state not only in the area of sustainability but also economy.

Welcoming the Solar Panel Manufacturing Plant


the representatives of Zonergy Corporation, a leading Chinese solar company, met the Punjab minister for industries and commerce, Chaudhry Shafay Hussain, to discuss investment opportunities in the province.

The meeting at the Punjab Investment Board was part of a concerted effort by Punjab, Pakistan’s richest province, to showcase its revenue-earning potential to an ever-expanding renewable energy sector.

Discussions focused on possible investment in Punjab including solar panel manufacturing. Punjab is one of the latest additions to a fast-growing world map of renewable energy; a map that is quickly changing the investment terrain in Pakistan.

Government Support and Incentives


Minister Shafay Hussain also repeated the government’s plan to ‘create a congenial atmosphere for industrial expansion’, stating that solar panels should be manufactured locally, as part of a vision to be ‘self-sufficient in everything’.

To assist incoming foreign investors, the government has provided a long list of special incentives including amnesty from income tax for 10 years and permission for duty-free import of machinery required ‘for the establishment or expansion of any industrial venture’.

A symbol of the PML(N)’s commitment to this vision of industrializing Pakistani Punjab is visible in land reclamation at the city of Garment City being developed near Lahore.

Advancing the Solar Energy Sector in Punjab


Punjab is determined to diversify the energy resources and develop the potential of the solar energy green in a green and sustainable way to meet its vast energy needs for development.

Confident in the future of the solar energy green in Punjab, Shao Wei, the general manager of Zonergy Corporation, said that in Bahawalpur, the 300-megawatt solar power plant installed by Zonergy Corporation has been successfully put into operation.

The Zonergy Corporation specializes in manufacturing solar panels, inverters and batteries. We will have a formal relationship with Punjab’s solar energy sector through Zonergy Corporation.

Foreign investors in Punjab will have a very solid security stance. it is a conscious effort on the side of the Punjab government to make the state security system robust and credible for bringing in foreign investments. Punjab can attain this objective only when there is a properly educated citizen consciousness.

Fostering Sustainable Development


The coordinated efforts to embellish the solar energy generation in Punjab is a great milestone in the march towards energy security, economic prosperity and well as environmental sustainability.

Over the years, Punjab has been inundated with sunlight, and the availability of land makes it a wonderful place for solar energy generation. Establishing a plant that manufactures solar panels is a commendable decision on the part of the Punjab Government.

They are essentially tapping into the local resources that are available in Punjab and are helping to boost the local industrial growth. The Punjab Government is also encouraging people to invest in the solar energy generation and providing incentives that can help them in installing the solar panels.
Further to this, creating a favorable environment for investment in solar energy generation would help them boost research, jobs and help the economy grow swiftly in a sustainable manner.

Contributions to Environmental Sustainability


Generating more solar energy is part of a larger vision to transform Punjab into an energy hub. It can help Punjab move away from carbon-polluting fossil fuel energy sources that are a major cause of climate change.

As countries around the world focus greater attention on the global energy transition and the shift over to renewables, we see Punjab leading the pack in providing a world of abundant solar energy. It is fortunate that international partners such as Zonergy Corporation can provide Punjab with support and expertise.

With this, Punjab took steps to become a leader in solar energy production, a more prosperous future that moved beyond outdated processes and invested in ‘sustaining’ growth.

Having participated in multi-level negotiations, the state aim to be at the center of breakthrough in solar energy production in the next five years.

The state government has not only built financial schemes to encourage individuals invest in solar energy in Punjab, it has also developed partnerships with companies such as Zonergy Corporation to bring an investment from the production of solar panels to Punjab. Hopefully, in the near future, Punjab will produce a large amount of sustainable energy.
