Before Ramazan commenced, K-Electric CEO Moonis Elahi promised that no load-shedding will take plan during the holy month, especially during iftar and sehri.
No additional load-shedding will take place in summers as well, he added. In the summers, the electricity demand is expected to reach 3,400 megawatts for which the company is prepared. According to KE distribution officer Amir Zia, by 2023 the company will curb load-shedding on 93% of its feeders.
