Karachi: Spokesperson for K-Electric said on Monday that even areas of the city that were currently and previously exempt from load shedding will now be affected.
According to the spokesperson, Karachi Nuclear Power Plant (KANUPP) has been shut due to technical problems and there is also a shortage of gas supply and pressure to other power plants.
He added that because of this, there is a shortfall in production as well as the demand is rising extraordinarily due to severe heat, therefore load shedding will be carried out in the whole city.
The spokesperson recommended strictly limiting use of non essential electrical appliances during this shortfall.
He further said the demand is being recorded at over 3000MW.
