Islamabad, November 17, 2014 (PPI-OT): All the electricity Distribution companies (DISCOs) have confirmed to the Ministry of Water and Power that the decision of zero load-shedding for all industries throughout the country is being implemented. The Ministry has been in constant touch with all the DISCOs for ensuring the implementation of the decision in its true spirit. The DISCOs were asked to submit a compliance report to the Ministry.
The decision of zero load-shedding for industry has no adverse impact on demand and supply gap for domestic users as the additional generation is meted out of the existing generation capacity available within the system. The additional generation will also not affect the cost of generation for the domestic users.
According to details there has been an increase of about 900-1000 MW witnessed in demand of electricity due to provision of uninterrupted power supply to the industry in the country.
