People in several Pakistani regions are currently facing power outages, which is spanning upto 14 hours, amid rising demand for power in the summer season.

Experts believe this shows a suspected flawed in the energy establishment of the country.

On Saturday, the mercury went up to over 40°C in most parts of the country, and it inflated power demand for cooling purposes, significantly, stretching the national grid’s total energy requirement up to 29,000 MW–30,000 MW. However, electricity generation could not pick up beyond 22,600 MW despite having a generation capacity close to 50,000 MW,

Masses are subjected to as many as 3-6 hours of load-shedding in urban areas daily, compared to earlier 1-2 hours between 7 p.m. and 5 a.m. It is in stark contrast to the announced outage of up to four hours in 24 hours.
