Outages on high-loss feeders bother those paying bills

LAHORE: Observance of loadshedding by the Lahore Electric Supply Company (Lesco) on high-loss feeders has irked those paying monthly electricity bills. They asked Lesco to disconnect power supply to the defaulters instead of punishing those paying bills.

Lesco is currently carrying out loadshedding of up to six hours in areas falling under 486 high-loss feeders. This is being carried out under a policy to recover dues from defaulters. The 486 feeders included over 200 in Lahore and the remaining in Kasur, Sheikhupura, Nankana Sahib and Okara.
