  • In my area under IESCO, there is a permanent power suspension on a daily basis and that too for long hours ranging from 3 to 6 and even more hours. Nowhere in the world including the Third World, such so-called maintenance work is carried out by switching off power for hours. In Pakistan the authorities switch off power to save electricity because all employees of WAPDA, DISCOs and similar others, serving and retired, enjoy free electricity for decades at the cost of the common man. Unfortunately, none points this out because those who can enjoy the same facilities, be it the government officials or the media personnel.

    • The sad reality is that to enjoy less load shedding you will have to shift to some other location, although you pay the bill.

      But it should motivate your more to earn more to install solar system

    • Indeed your area definitely has high line losses and large amount of theft. That’s why as per policy of recover and consumption load shedding is based on daily to suffer for all of consumers in that specific area at all.

  • As them to choose the very high temperature 🌡️ days. we have the coming days higher than Friday and Saturday
