Karachi may experience load shedding during Eid holidays

KARACHI: Karachi is expected to face power outages as the city temperatures go up, utility provider K-Electric has warned.
“Power outages may occur due to higher temperatures and humidity. We are working to ensure minimal disruption and zero loadshed during Eid holidays,” the power utility said in a tweet.
The KE had previously announced that there will be no load shedding during Eid holidays.
A spokesperson of the power utility said that the load shedding may occur as the mercury is rising. She said the infrastructure is affected when power theft occurs in any area.
She claimed that no load shedding occurred in any part of the city during Ramazan. “The power was continuously supplied to areas with 80% power theft,” she added.
The Pakistan Meteorological Department has forecast that Karachi will experience hot and humid weather during Eid-ul-Fitr which was observed on Sunday. Most of the country’s plains would experience hot and dry weather during Eid holidays.
