LAHORE: LESCO has stated that load shedding will be temporarily suspended in Lahore after a major decline in demand for electricity following the expected change in the climate. It wouldn’t be wrong if we say that it is due to the weather, not LESCO.
According to sources at LESCO, the decision was taken after a significant reduction in the demand and supply gap at this moment, as the demand was measured at 3200 MegaWatts against a supply of 2900 MegaWatts. Thus leaving the company with a negligible to the minimum shortfall of 300 MegaWatts only.
Meanwhile, two-hours-a-day load shedding is being carried out in the suburb areas of the city, officials said.
It may also be noted that a fault in the customer information and building system led to an awkward situation for the consumers in the previous days.
