Reon partnered with the Government of Punjab to solarize 80 Basic Health Units across remote regions of Punjab to ensure uninterrupted supply of power and better healthcare facilities for the rural communities.
Each plant houses a hybrid solar system averaging around 3kW, adding up to 240kW with an expected annual generation of 200,000kWh. The project was executed in a record time of 180 days with Zero Lost Time Incident (LTI).

Decentralized healthcare sites are particularly dependent on energy supply for meeting their energy needs. Interruption in energy supply can severely affect well-being of thousands of people, especially women and children, who often suffer due to lack of primary health care services.
As stated by Dr. Ayesha at a Basic Health Care Unit in Sheikhupura;
“Before the installation of a Solar PV Plant, the critical patients had to be rushed to Lahore. However, now we can easily offer basic medical healthcare at our facility. The Solar plant has also helped us deal with regular 48-72 hours of load shedding and maintaining operations during later hours.”
Solar energy supply for the basic healthcare facilities in Punjab have helped build a resilient healthcare system as well as healthier futures.
Annual Energy Generation (kWh): 200,000
