ISLAMABAD (APP) - Nine closed power plants are likely to resume operations in the current month which will help bridge the electricity gap between demand and supply, official sources said. They said the power units which were closed due to various reasons will also be helpful to minimise load management being observed by Pakistan Electric Power Company (PEPCO). They said the nine power plants included Guddu (215 MW), Guddu unit-3 (150 MW), Muzafargarah (160 MW), Chasnupp (300 MW), Uch power (180 MW), AES PAKGEN (350 MW), Orient Power(215 MW), Saif Power (110MW) and Alstom Rental (38 MW). Meanwhile, the power generation on Wednesday was recorded as 12,301 MW against total demand of 15,567 MW with shortfall of 3,266 MW during the last 24 hours. According to the daily power generation report, out of total power generation, 4652 MW was generated from hydel, 2,388 MW from thermal, 5,135 MW from IPPs and 116 MW from Rental plants.
