ISLAMABAD (PR) – The U.S. government’s energy efforts align with the key priorities of Pakistan’s recently unveiled National Power Policy. The policy identifies the need to improve transmission networks and minimize distribution inefficiencies, which is also the goal of this $230 million USAID-funded program.

Secretary Kerry also noted that U.S. efforts to enhance electricity transmission and distribution complement other large-scale energy projects, such as the rehabilitation of Tarbela and Mangla dams, and the renovation of thermal power plants in Jamshoro, Muzaffargarh, and Guddu.
Programs like the one at Zero Point work to ensure that power “generated from infrastructure projects is actually going to reach people reliably and efficiently. It’s an example of smart power through smart metering,” said Secretary Kerry.
