Balochistan faces 1110 MW shortfall of electricity

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)
