LAHORE: The revocation of net metering for solar systems has stirred significant debate, particularly affecting those who have invested in green technology. However, Energy Minister Awais Leghari has recently provided an update, clarifying that the federal government has no plans to revoke solar net metering after the upcoming budget.

The initial announcement generated widespread concern and confusion, prompting contrasting reports. As media outlets fueled the controversy, the current administration began considering adjustments, mainly focusing on financial regulations. Despite these discussions, net metering users expressed a preference for maintaining the current framework.

Federal Energy Minister Awais Ahmad Leghari addressed these concerns, stating that the government has no intention of ending the solar net metering policy in the forthcoming budget. He refuted alarming media reports and emphasized the government’s commitment to supporting solar energy. Leghari highlighted that the solar net metering initiative was introduced by PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif and remains a priority under the current administration led by PM Shahbaz Sharif.

“The Nawaz Sharif-led government introduced the solar net metering scheme in 2017,” Leghari said. “We will continue to support and encourage net metering, as it is a policy close to the heart of PM Shahbaz Sharif.”
