Monsoon to help
reduce load shedding: Expected monsoon rains will help reduce the power crisis as hydel generation would increase in the country.
Currently power shortfall is over 5,000MW in the country, which is likely to be reduced with the expected monsoon rains, increasing the hydel generation in the coming days, reported a private news channel on Friday.
An increase up to 1,400MW in overall power generation would reduce load shedding in the country which is expecting to receive monsoon rains in the next few days, which would help in generating 1,000MW powers through hydel generation and this addition would reduce load shedding during the month of Ramadan.
