The energy crisis in the country has improved as the power shortfall has been reduced to 3000 megawatts.
Details show that the power demand in the country is 27,000 while the supply has been increased to 24,000 MW. Load-shedding has been reduced in rural and urban areas.
A spokesperson for Lahore Electric Supply Company (LESCO) has stated that their current power demand and supply are in balance, but that load-shedding is occurring in areas with higher line losses.
Previously, on June 1, the load-shedding in Punjab’s capital city became more severe, with power outages lasting up to 14 hours.
According to sources, the electricity quota for the Lahore Electric Supply Company (LESCO) has been reduced, resulting in the shutting down of feeders every hour.
The demand for electricity has reached 5,300 MW against the availability of 3,800 MW, resulting in a shortfall of 1,500 MW in June. The duration of the power outage in rural Punjab has reached 14 hours.
