Recently, authorities in Pakistan have initiated various projects to overcome the rising energy crisis in Pakistan. To ease the pressure, a US-based company, SkyElectric, has spread its wings in Pakistan to provide smart energy solutions.
SkyElectric plans to begin deploying systems by end March 2017.
SkyElectric Event Launch
SkyElectric Inc. launched its Smart Energy System in Pakistan at an event held in the Marriott Hotel, Islamabad on the 27th of February, 2017.
The event was attended by members of the government, energy sector, corporate executives, homeowners, academia, green architects and builders.
The CEO started off with a presentation on the energy crisis in the developing world, and why the system was the right building block for a new form of clean power infrastructure.
He demonstrated how the Smart Energy System has multiple features which allow it to be the most advanced solar and storage energy system in the global market.
Ashar Aziz, CEO of SkyElectric, gave a demonstration of the Smart Energy System, in which the audience was treated to a live demo of the Smart Energy Console, the heart of the system.
SkyElectric Smart Energy System is a next generation solar energy production, management and storage solution.
What is SkyElectric’s Smart Energy Console?
The Smart Energy System (SES) integrates technology with a solar grid system that results in a clean, high quality and cheaper source of energy. In other words, it is a substitute for UPS and generators.
The Smart Energy System is an all in one solution and comprises of the following parts:
- Smart Energy Inverter
- Smart Energy Storage
- Solar Panels
- Network Operations Center
It also comes with a storage management system software and a mobile application.

The Smart Energy Console has a touch screen interface, which gives insight into system operations. It has built-in 3G chip and WiFi connectivity, which allows the software to relay information to the SkyElectric Cloud.
Technical support personnel in a Network Operations Center have access to the cloud and can remotely monitor and diagnose faults in the system.
Additionally there is an accompanying SkyElectric App, which provides the same level of visibility as the Smart Energy Console.
Sky Electric is using technology that matches with the energy demands of growing economies. The cost of a three per kilowatt-hour (kWh) solar power system is approximately PKR 1 million.
The company has introduced solar energy systems between 20 to 30 per kWh, which are more cost effective for small and medium sized industries. The solar powered system will also have a backup support system.
The tentative price list of SkyElectric packages is as below:
- 3kW – PKR 998,000
- 5kW – PKR 1,380,000
- 10kW – PKR 2,440,000
- 20kW – PKR 4,880,000
- 30kW – PKR 6,595,000
