NationalEfforts in place to mitigate load shedding: Power Division

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Power Division has said that recent load shedding on December 25 and 26, 2023 was due to tripping of multiple grid stations in Multan region and other Power Distribution Companies (DISCOs).

Due to fog, the grid stations of 132kv, 220kv and 500kv tripped.


During same time, the Hydel generation plummeted creating constraints to balance the system.

The NTDC system is facing a challenging time due to these extreme weather conditions and low hydel generation.

Current shortfall in generation is mitigated by load management to keep the system working.

The shortfall due to hydel is around 1600MW due to canal closure and 700MW is due to less LNG availability.

The Power Division said that it is trying to minimise this shortfall and furnace oil is being used to mitigate the LNG shortage and to generate 800 MW.

The load shedding was due to system constraints and efforts are in place to manage the system.
