New Power Plants
Power generation is expected to increase over the next few years with the addition of new nuclear and coal fired power plants.
On top of that, regular loadshedding has become almost non existent in some posh areas of Islamabad. Power is usually shut down for a few minutes at most. The situation might change by the end of the year when water shortages occur due to low rainfall, increasing the power generation shortfall.
