well SOLAR THERMAL technology is promising, despite this
no new solar thermal power plant has been constructed in the USA for 20 years.
its very sad that indians are way ahead of us in this field too. they r producing more than 7000MW from wind energy alone. we have to take the initiative now. its now or never. rising oil prices and an oil dependent economy will make our produce too expensive to export. situation will hit us even harder in the absence of an efficient transportation system. by the way, our electric locomotives have already spent their useful life and if there is some left we can't arrange cheap electricity to run it.
bio fuel is the hip word these days. countries like brazil have shifted almost half of their dependence from black oil to this in the recent past by developing in house technology. we could hav done so, but the budget allocation to the concerned department in this fiscal year is just 150 million rs. , price of a 01 kanal house in average localities of lahore.
anyhow, furqan u r lucky to get only four hours of power outages. we in lahore are getting six hours of it.
