In a significant move towards promoting green energy, the PML-N-led government has announced tax relief on solar imports in Pakistan’s Budget 2024–25. This initiative is aimed at making solar energy more affordable for households and businesses by reducing the costs associated with solar panels, inverters, and related equipment.

The tax incentives introduced in the budget cover not only the import of complete solar panels but also the production of machinery, raw materials, and components related to solar energy. This comprehensive approach is designed to stimulate the local solar industry, decrease emissions, and conserve valuable foreign exchange reserves.

Previously, inverters were subject to an 18% sales tax, which posed a significant financial burden for consumers. The new tax relief measures are expected to alleviate these costs, making solar energy a more accessible and appealing option for Pakistanis.

Chinese investors have also recommended imposing import duties on fully assembled solar panels to promote local manufacturing. This strategy could bolster domestic production, create employment opportunities, and strengthen the solar industry in Pakistan.

Despite earlier concerns, the government has decided to maintain the existing net-metering policy. This policy allows individuals and businesses that generate solar power to sell excess electricity back to the grid, providing continued support for those investing in solar energy.
