Karachi: Continuing its tradition, K-Electric will provide maximum relief to its consumers at Sehr and Iftar times during the upcoming holy month of Ramazan.

In a statement, K-Electric says the power utility has taken various measures during the last year to further enhance the reliability and availability of power supply including addition of 50MW through a solar-based IPP while principal approval for an additional 150MW from the national grid has also been granted by the Ministry of Energy (Power Division).

While KE aims to utilize maximum available generation to manage the shortfall against peak summer demand, load management would be carried out with maximum relief to domestic and commercial consumers during Sehr and Iftar.

According to KE spokesperson, “As part of summer preparedness, we have strengthened our network and system and have beefed up the on-ground work force through capacity building and technological advancement.

Aimed at facilitating customers in the best possible organizational capacity, all KE staff will ensure increased vigilance. The power utility has also partnered with National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), Pakistan Meteorological Department and Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Center to organize Climate change, Summer & Monsoon Safety Awareness Seminar next week.

KE also seeks support from the community to notify the utility about any power theft or illegal abstraction while extending support to on-ground staff in carrying out operational work as well as minimizing the use of heavy electrical appliances during peak hours.

Moreover, KE’s Rapid Response teams are operational 24/7 throughout city and fully able to address any localized issues.
