No time frame for loadshedding: DG PEPCO

Express April 13, 2010


Director General PEPCO Muhammad Kalid said that he can not give a time frame for the end of loadshedding.

Speaking to media in Lahore, Khalid said PEPCO is facing a 4,980 megawatt shortfall, in the face of an over 15-thousand megawatt demand.

Khalid said that 9 hours of loadshedding was taking place in both rural and urban areas of Lahore.

DG PEPCO added that power supply had been disconnected to furnace mills, with whom negotations have yet to be sorted out.

He added that three units of the Gudu power plant have been closed due to an upgrade.

Reehan Ahmed Qureshi | 14 years ago | Reply Load shedding timings in different cities in Pakistan. Islamabad/Rawalpindi load shedding timings are changed now after one hour load shedding start. Load shedding duration has gone up to 6 hours to 12 hours in a day. Why load shedding period is too long in Rawalpindi/Islamabad, here not huge industrial units working.
