The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority report has revealed that load-shedding in Karachi is not only due to gas shortage but also a faulty K-Electric system.

The NEPRA report says that KE could not even achieve a target of low transmission losses. The company’s overloaded capacity transformers have also tripled.

In the year 2018-19, the number of overloaded transformers of KE were 808, which increased to 2,250 within a year.

The NEPRA report states that a faulty transmission system and additional power transmission from NTD is not possible as KE’s transmission system cannot carry more than 650 megawatts.
