HUB-Reon Energy Limited, the leading solar energy company in Pakistan, has successfully delivered a 5.5kWp off-Grid Solar Solution to Jam Ghulam Qadir Hospital at Hub.

The project sponsored by HUBCO will provide 24-hour power access to the emergency and labour rooms of the hospital. “The emergency room of the hospital caters to the need of more than 1,500 people every month, while more than 240 maternity cases are managed every month at this facility. The solar solution is currently running 25 bulbs, 12 fans and other devices,” said Dr. Abbas Lasi, a senior official at the hospital.

Inam-ur-Rahman, CEO Reon Energy Limited stated, “At Reon we see every rooftop as a possible producer of electricity. Solar energy solutions can help transform the quality of health care at an institutional level, especially for those residing in the off-grid areas of Pakistan.”

This is the second collaborative venture between HUBCO and Reon. Earlier, Reon had also provided a solar solution to TCF School HUBCO IPGDL Campus that is one of the pioneering schools in the region running on solar energy.
