QUETTA: Balochistan faces 1110 Mega Watts shortfall as its demand has touched a mark of 1600 MW while available supply is 950 MW.
Sources said that 5 to 6 hours daily load shedding is made in Quetta city. However, due to system overloading sometimes there is tripping and low voltage. According to the sources daily 10 hours supply is made in Pishin, Killa Abdullah, Mastung, Kalat, Zhob, Killa Saifullah and all city feeders in different timings while Jaffarabad, Nasirabad, are supplied 12 hours and Sibi 18 hours daily.
All rural and agri feeders are supplied for 7 hours daily because owning to extensive overloading of system more than 7 hours supply is not possible. (Courtesy: PPI)
