55 Million People in Pakistan Do Not have Electricity: Chairman Nepra

55 million people in Pakistan lack access to power, according to Taseef H. Farooqui, chairman of the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA).


Addressing at the occasion in Karachi, Chairman Nepra noted that Pakistan’s energy industry is going through a challenging time; our capability for generating electricity exceeds our need; load shedding is caused by imported fuel.


According to Chairman Nepra, 5.5 crore people in Pakistan lack access to electricity. Nepra has projected future power consumption, and the small grid’s regulatory framework presents a chance for the private sector to supply electricity because they have the capacity to do so locally.
