Punjab Govt & Power Generation

  • Provincial Govts were allowed to do small electricity production projects upto 50 MW, even before 18th amendment, but none of the provincial Govts, including Punjab did even 1 50MW project. A 50MW project is enough to provide 60K to 65K households uninterrupted power supply for 24 hours.

    I wonder why Punjab Govt did not do such projects as Punjab is the worse affected from this load shedding prob. I thin, at least there should have been few small projects for the industrial area to keep the factories running and unemployment under control.
