KARACHI: Pakistan Petroleum Limited (PPL) has donated Rs15.5 million for providing solar power modules (SPMs) to meet the much-needed electricity requirements of 500 households in District Awaran, Balochistan, a statement said on Wednesday.

To this end, a two-day hands-on- training programme was organised for village-based focal persons from Awaran district, Balochistan between January 22 and 23 at a local hotel in Karachi to operate, maintain and repair the SPMs, it added.
