LAHORE: Long hours of loadshedding are adding to public anxiety. Total power generation, according to Pepco, was 10306 megawatts while demand stood at more than 15000 megawatts on Saturday.
From Hydel power projects, the energy generated is nearly 3000 megawatts, from IPPs 5000 megawatts and thermal power projects nearly 3000.
Cities are suffering from more than 12 hours of power cuts, despite announcements from Pepco that there would be 9 hours only. In smaller cities and rural areas, the blackouts are going up to 20 hours.
