There will be no respite from the sweltering heat as the power shortfall reaches 8000MW

Power outages have severely impacted Pakistan during the holy month of Ramadan, with Pakistanis experiencing up to 10 hours of power load-shedding.

All urban areas, including Karachi, Hyderabad, Rawalpindi, Lahore, Faisalabad, and Sialkot, have been severely impacted by up to 8 hours of load-shedding, while rural areas have been impacted by 10 hours.

According to the Power Division, the country has been producing around 18,000 megawatts of electricity while demand has risen to 26,000 megawatts.

The prolonged load-shedding has added to the public’s misery, making it difficult to perform daily chores, particularly during sehri and iftar times.
