Opening of Solar Power Generation Project in Sarobi District, Kabul: Power Generation is a Government Priority

Bayan News – On Wednesday (September 19), Deputy Minister of Economy of the caretaker government in Kabul, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, inaugurated a 10-megawatt solar power generation project in Sarobi District, Kabul.

During the inauguration of this project, the Deputy Minister of Economy of the caretaker government stated that the Islamic Emirate is committed to serving the people and developing the country, unlike previous regimes.

He added that the Islamic Emirate has prioritized domestic power generation to achieve this goal and has called on all investors to invest in the power generation sector within the country.

Mullah Baradar clearly stated, “Continuing these efforts, today we witness the start of solar power generation with a capacity of 10 megawatts. Considering the need for power generation, this project may seem small, but it is very important for me in terms of achieving self-sufficiency. It signifies that we are liberating ourselves from the dependence on others by generating 10 megawatts of power.”

The Deputy Minister of Economy of the caretaker government continued to emphasize that the current government attaches great importance to energy and is determined to hand over the completion contract of the Lin 500 kilovolt project, which extends from Turkmenistan, to the Afghan “Enwist” company, which will provide the infrastructure for the transmission of hundreds of megawatts of electricity to the country.

According to Mr. Baradar, foreign investors should participate in the reconstruction of Afghanistan, and now investment opportunities have emerged for them to take advantage of.

It should be noted that the 10-megawatt solar power generation project, with a cost of 700 million Afghanis, will be completed in one year with the support of the private sector and the caretaker government in Kabul.
