“This initiative will empower nearly 40% of Pakistanis who live off the grid with access to clean and affordable solar energy,” Telenor Pakistan’s Chief Financial Services Officer Yahya Khan said during a media roundtable at the company’s Karachi office.

According to Khan, a large number of the country’s rural population lacks access to electricity and depends on expensive, inefficient fuel-based sources. “The Solar Home Solution will provide a sustainable, affordable and long-lasting electricity solution,” he added.
