News stands with its report
LAHORE: The Lahore Electric Supply Company (Lesco) has strongly denied the news published in the Daily “The News” on June 2, 2020 with the title “increasing electric load loading by 20 to 100 Pc”.
In a statement, Lesco said that the veteran journalist seemed to rely solely on his knowledge of the electricity sector and based his story on hearsay without trying to understand the official version of Lesco’s CEO.
Lesco strongly disproved the impression given that the release of the power load increased by 20 to 100 pc despite a decrease in demand after relatively pleasant weather. According to the Lesco Control Distribution Center, before Ramzan the load management schedule for AT&C loss feeders is below: 00-10% (Zero load shedding), 10-20% (Zero load shedding), 20-30% (3 Hours), 30- 40% (5 hours), and 40-60% (7 hours)
Meanwhile, the new schedule for load management on feeders under AT&C losses was changed and implemented on June 1, 2020. Under the new schedule, out of a total of 1,891 feeders in the Lesco region, in 1737 feeders in categories 1 & 2 there was zero loading shedding. 128 feeders in category 3, load management is about two hours but to clarify that we currently have excess production so this category is also in the management of unloading. PDC will monitor the situation and if necessary there will be a two hour load management.
In fact, load management time has been reduced rather than increased from 5 hours to 4 hours in category 4 and from 7 hours to 6 hours in category 5. There are a total of 26 feeders in both categories.
Likewise, it is to clarify once again that if a blackout occurs due to a technical error, it should not be misunderstood with a power outage.
The News Correspondent added: This report is not based on hearsay. Details of
revised load management plan issued by the electric utility has been issued. The official and unofficial versions of LESCO have also provided sufficient space in newspaper reports. News stands with its report.
