OUR STAFF REPORTER LAHORE Electricity shortfall dropped to 3,000MW on Sunday as the weather conditions improved and its demand decreased in the country, especially in its northern parts. Despite relief in weather and decrease in shortfall, the loadshedding, however, continued with at least eight hours of outages in most areas. But experts blamed the outages on less supply of oil and gas to two main IPPs and the PEPCO-owned GENCOs. According to Pakistan Electric Power Company, the total power shortfall had declined to 2,850MW, as the power demand stood at 16,370MW against the supply of 13,520MW. Power outages of up to 8 hours are being faced by our cities, including Lahore, while the rural areas were facing up to 10 hours of outages, an official said. Meanwhile, 710MW electricity to Karachi Electric Supply Company was being ensured from the PEPCOs quota, he added.
