Locals hit by power tripping, low voltage

LAHORE: With the mercury level rising, complaints of frequent power tripping and low voltage have increased manifold in the provincial capital.

Citizens complained that unstable power supply has destroyed electrical appliances in their homes and offices.

Talking to The Express Tribune, a resident of China Scheme, Hassan Raza said that hardly 140-150 volts are being supplied to their neighbourhood by the Lahore Electric Supply Company (LESCO). “We have taken up this issue with the LESCO authorities many times. We always get the same response; the power network is overloaded and the company is trying to upgrade the aging system to deal with the swelling load.”
