PML-N follows PPP example, looks for mobile and rental power plants
Nervously finding itself in the shoes of last PPP government, the PML-N government is considering hiring mobile power plants (MPPs) besides reviving some rental power plants (RPPs) it condemned almost six years ago.
On top of that, the government is also earnestly striving to utilise the idle capacity of some of the independent power plants (IPPs) closed down due to various disputes and instruct the industrial sector to make available their captive power plants (CPPs).
The Punjab chief minister suggested that generating power through solar system should also be examined as such projects can be made operational in six to eight months.
