The Pakistan Electric Power Company (PEPCO) on Wednesday announced an extension in the duration of load-shedding across Punjab as at least four of power plants tripped due to smog and technical faults. The authorities confirmed that Guddu, Baloki, Nishat and Nishat Choniyan power plants tripped leading to an immediate shortfall of 250MW. The energy distribution company has temporarily extended the duration of load-shedding and added 1000MW from LESCO Quetta to manage the shortfall. The shortfall is causing a power outage after every one hour in Lahore. PEPCO authorities have expressed hope that electricity supply will be normalised as soon as the technical faults are fixed.
