Government efforts to generate more power in system
Islamabad: The government is putting in all efforts to generate more power in the system. About 3500 MW have been added to the system by the Government so far. This has helped bridging the supply and demand gap and reduces load shedding. The statement is being wrongly projected that load shedding will not end by 2018. Load shedding magnitude has already dropped compared to previous years. The highest demand which occurs during summer of any year and the planned generation projects by the Government, including the new plants has already started balancing each other (seasonal balance). By no means was it stated that load shedding will continue till 2018.
