Pakistan has initiated talks with central Asian countries of Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan for electricity export during winter under the (Central Asia-South Asia) (CASA-1000) agreement. As per the agreement, Pakistan will import 1,000MW of electricity per day at 9.50 cents per unit in summer from May to October. A 750 kilometer-long high-voltage direct current (DC) transmission line between Pakistan and Tajikistan via Afghanistan will be built at a cost of $1.7 billion for this purpose.
Moreover, the project also includes the construction of converter stations in all three countries. The agreement is a win-win situation for Pakistan as it states that the country will not be liable to pay for any electricity transit loss in Afghanistan in case of any untoward activity.
