To recall, electricity shortfall surged on Wednesday, March 30, causing a power breakdown in various cities across Pakistan. At that time, the government officials said, “Due to tripping of three nuclear plants, some areas had to face temporary loadshedding today. The plants will be back on the system within a few hours.”
Due to the breakdown, power consumers in various parts of the country, including Lahore, Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Peshawar, and Gujranwala, faced major power outages. The shortfall had also triggered up to 10 hours of load-shedding in different areas.
