Solar experts call for investments in Afghanistan's solar power

solar in KandaharA number of solar power analysts have called on the government and private sector to enhance investment in Afghanistan’s solar power sectors.

Having 300 days of sunlight, Afghanistan exhibits a strong potential for solar power.

Experts believe Afghanistan has the capacity to produce 200,000 MW of solar energy, if solar panels are installed.

The Ministry of Energy and Water has confirmed Afghanistan’s potential to produce solar energy, however, the cost of setting up solar parks remains to be a major hurdle.

Last month, Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat (DABS), Afghanistan’s national power entity, executed one of the largest off-grid solar power systems in central Bamyan province.

Costing USD 14,150,000, the project was implemented with technical and financial collaboration from New Zealand.

The project has a capacity to produce 1 megawatt of electricity through 3 power networks.

Regions that  benefit from the project are:

– Haidarabad, Sar Asib and Nawabad will benefit from the first power network

–  New Bamyan City will benefit from the second network

– Mullah Ghulam, Regshad, Azhdar valley and Mullah Ghulam’s New City wll benefit from the third network

As many as 2,490 families have found access to electricity through this project.
