Many areas of the national capital are facing massive load-shedding, stretching to over two hours every day.
Lt Governor Najeeb Jung yesterday had said that many areas of the city may continue to face planned blackouts for a few more days as repairs to the power towers and lines which were damaged in the storm that hit the city last week are taking time.
“Before the storm struck, we were generating about 5,000 MW of electricity, which was reduced to 1,000MW (due to the storm). You can imagine what we went through, worried that the entire city will be plunged into darkness.
“We are now producing 4,600-4,700 MW. The problem is that some big towers and lines fell in the storm and repairing them would take some time. Due to rising temperatures, the demand for power has shot up to 6,000 MW, which we (cannot meet).
“So, there could be blackouts for another three to four days to cope with the crisis,” Jung had said.
The storm on May 30, which was accompanied by winds at speeds of over 90-kmph, plunged most areas of the city into darkness as uprooted trees snapped power lines.
