Government announces decision on load shedding on Eid ul Azha

As the Eid-ul-Adha holidays approach, the federal government has assured that there will be no load shedding, as reported recently. To facilitate this decision, the Ministry of Energy has requested power generation and consumption data from distribution companies.

This announcement brings hope to citizens who have endured prolonged power outages amid scorching temperatures. Power distribution companies have reported a deficit of 6,300 megawatts.

Currently, the electricity demand stands at 26,900 megawatts, while the total generation is only 20,600 megawatts. The national grid contributes 7,900 megawatts, with independent power producers adding 7,700 megawatts.

However, it is important to highlight that nuclear power plants only generate 3,130 megawatts, exacerbating the existing crisis.
