LESCO to procure spare electricity from textile mills

It looks like the Lahore Electricity Supply Company (LESCO) has suddenly woken up to tackle the load shedding issue, as it has decided to procure 120 megawatts of excess power from the textile units.

The reports say that, LESCO is all set to ink a deal with several textile units to acquire power which is not consumed by them. It is assumed that, certain textile units, for over years have set up their personal power generating units but they are not utilizing 100 percent of the electricity generated from these units.

LESCO, bearing in mind the circumstances and suppressed by the pressure both from the side of the government as well as public, to evolve newer means to trim down load shedding, has decided to procure excess power from the textile units.

According to the experts, in spite of that the All-Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) members had idle power for over a long period of time but somehow they did not succeed in selling the same to LESCO prior to LESCO's approach to them for procuring the same.

Experts aver that, if persuaded, the textile mill owners could establish their individual units based on the take-and-pay concept and satisfy not only their personal requirements but also supply electricity to the units in vicinity.

A textile mill owner recommended that, introduction of long-term strategies is a way in which mill owners could be lured. He further said that, most of them have huge capital and if they are given a favourable atmosphere then they could set up their individual units.

APTMA spokesperson hopes that, adding extra electricity to the LESCO system would probably help trim down electricity cuts.
