ISLAMABAD (INP) - Several independent power producers (IPPs) have stopped supply of electricity due to non-payment of dues by PEPCO and non-availability of furnace oil to the private powerhouses, raising the power shortfall to over 5,000 megawatt. Power crisis in the country has further worsened for want of funds and the furnace oil. The power plants whose generation of electricity has dropped down include Turkey, Gulf, Hubco and Kot Addu, while Faisalabad, Roosh, Reshma, Shahidra, Orient, Lal Pir, Japan and Sepcol power plants have completely suspended the power supply. The power shortfall went up by 2,000 megawatts due to the dwindling generation of electricity, which has stretched Lahore loadshedding duration to 14 hours. PEPCO spokesman said 13,240 megawatt electricity was being generated against a demand peaking at 18,065 megawatt. Giving breakup of electricity generation, he said currently the hydel power production stood at 5,030 megawatt and Thermal at 1,813 megawatt, while 6,297 megawatt of electricity was being received from the IPPs. Private power houses had told the government and PEPCO that they would suspend power supply if their dues were not cleared but the warning was ignored.
