Few textile mills to be exempted from load shedding

Recently, it has been decided by the Pakistan Electric Power Company (PEPCO) to exempt a few units of the textile sector from the purview of power cuts. While this move will benefit only 80 mills, the remaining 200 mills will have to still face the menace.

According to PEPCO, once the electricity supply becomes consistent the textile sector will be completely out of the purview of power cuts. However, till then, this short-term relief is being offered, but it is meant only for those textile units who receive electricity from independent feeders.

Textile mills and units in Lahore, Faislabad, Gujranwala, Peshawar and Rawalpindi have to continue to bear the brunt of power cuts for atleast four hours a day. According to the utility service, once the gas supply to the thermal plant gets better, the hours of power cuts will be gradually reduced.

Industry experts claim that, PEPCO is keen over executing the Energy Conversation Plan (ECP) throughout the country so that the problem of power cut comes to an end.

With the country's total power production coming to around 10,439 megawatts (MW), it is still short of 3,852 MW of power. PEPCO has also reduced the output of power by 33 percent, following the implementation of ECP. However, the situation had slightly improved due to closure of markets at 8 pm.
