Reon Energy Ltd has announced the commissioning of its latest 12.5MW captive solar power project at Fauji Cement Co Ltd (FCCL) in Jhang Bahtar, Punjab, Pakistan.

"The 12.5MW solar plant shall offset higher energy prices for power from grid and other sources. The cement sector is going through a tough patch, lower prices and demand compression, this initiative should help preserve margins in a tough environment. I commend the Fauji Cement Team for taking a leap towards energy independence, we’re privileged to have played our role," said Mujtaba Haider Khan, CEO of Reon Energy Ltd.
