LAHORE: Mian Hafiz Nauman, the chairman of the board of directors of Lahore Electric Supply firm (LESCO), announced on Wednesday that the firm had upgraded from a 66 KVA system to a 132 KVA system,
He claimed that LESCO’s project management division was crucial for reaching the objective. He continued that no other disco has yet been moved to 132KVA. He said that LESCO had been assigned 16 targets by the NPCC, each of which had been achieved.
The misunderstanding that the LESCO system’s capacity is constrained and that load shedding occurs during the heat wave was dispelled by Chairman LESCO.
He claimed that while the demand for electricity during the heat wave was only 6000 MegaWatts, the LESCO system has a capacity of more than 13,800 MegaWatts.
He said that NTDC’s outdated distribution system was to blame for load shedding during the heat wave spell. He said that in addition to adding additional transformers, the government was improving the system.
