Check on the waste of electricity

The public’s demand for a check on power waste in government offices is growing as a result of the extraordinary load-shedding of electricity that has been occurring for eight months. A committee made up of representatives from the Ministries of Energy, Planning, Petroleum, and Natural Resources will be formed to develop an energy efficiency programme in consultation with provincial governments in response to Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s directive to reduce electricity consumption at the government level by 30%. It is indisputable that the constant decline in hydraulic production, reliance on oil and gas, and rising demand have caused its crisis and sharp price increase, which can only be judged from the fact that at this moment tomorrow, 61% of the production must be obtained from oil and gas; the fragile economy cannot afford this situation. Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif gave the order to create plans to produce the most electricity from the sun a few days ago during a special meeting where he was briefed on potential solar energy projects. When taking into account the necessity to produce affordable energy as well as eliminate its excessive consumption, it is predicted that the country’s demand for power will increase eight times by 2030. The widespread consensus is that government agencies waste a significant amount of electricity. Additionally, despite the fact that there is legislation against line losses and electricity theft, it has not been able to be stopped as of yet. There is no reason why a significant quantity of wasted electricity cannot be avoided in this case if it is successfully averted.
