LESCO Green/Net Metering

Green Electricity Meters / Net Meters 

In Pakistan, the electricity price per unit is too high, that’s why people are finding low cost alternatives of WAPDA electricity to use in a more sustainable and environment friendly energy. Electricity with solar panels is a good alternative to WAPDA electricity, here is another edge of electricity with solar panels. If the electricity is more than your usage then you can transfer this energy to the national grid of pakistan with green electricity meter or net meters. But what exactly are these meters, and how do they fit into Pakistan’s energy plans? Let’s take a look at what green electricity meters are, how people can get them through WAPDA companies (LESCO, MEPCO,GEPCO, IESCO, PESCO, HESCO, SEPCO, QESCO, TESCO).

What are Green Electricity Meters?

Green electricity meters, also known as net meters or bi-directional meters, are specialized devices used to measure the flow of electricity in two directions: from the national grid to the consumer’s premises and consumer’s premises to the national grid. These meters play an important role in facilitating the integration of renewable energy sources such as solar energy into the existing electrical grid infrastructure. When a consumer generates electricity through renewable sources, such as solar panels, the excess energy can be fed back into the grid. Green electricity meters accurately measure the amount of surplus energy exported to the grid, enabling consumers to receive credits or compensation for the electricity they contribute. This process, known as net metering, promotes sustainable energy practices by encouraging clean energy production and reducing reliance on traditional fossil fuel-based power generation. In Pakistan, adoption of green electricity meters is an important step towards achieving energy independence and reducing the environmental impact of conventional energy sources.

The cost for obtaining a new green meter through LESCO may vary depending on factors such as meter type and installation requirements. However, the government often subsidizes the cost to encourage the adoption of sustainable energy practices.

Timeframe for Installation:
