Textile mills offer help to overcome power shortage

Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) of Pakistan is facing a crisis of meeting a shortfall of 3000 Megawatt of electricity. The textile mills in the country have offered to lend help if the Government offers them adequate price for selling the energy.

Textile mills across Pakistan have extended the proposal of providing 2000 megawatt of electricity if the Government promises to offer the same rate for purchase that WAPDA has finalized with gas-base Independent Power Plants (IPPs).

All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) members have agreed to cater electricity at no profits basis by including only the cost of generation. Besides, it has also proposed to contribute surplus power from the captive power plants of its members which operate on furnace oil and natural gas.

In all, APTMA members have demonstrated its strength to immediately supply 500 megawatt to Lahore Electric Supply Company and 300 megawatt to Karachi Electricity Supply Company.

This very reputed association seeks to bring the matter to the consideration of the Prime Minister adding that the prevalent power shortage can be effectively dealt if textile mills are given equitable rates for their supplies.
