Kabulis urged to use electricity sparingly in winter

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The power utility on Monday asked residents of capital Kabul to use electricity sparingly in winter to avoid load shedding.

Da Afghanistaninfo-icon Breshna Shirkat (DABS) spokesman Wahidullah Tawhidi told a press conference that Kabul needed 700 megawatts of electricity during winter season.

“Besides 300 megawatts of imported electricity, thermal power and electricity produced by Naghlo, Mahipar and Sarobi dams collectively provide 420 megawatts which is not enough for Kabul,” he said.

He asked Kabul residents not to heavily use electricity, particularly in evening times during winter or they had to face load shedding due to inadequacy of the power.

Kabul electricity head, Mohib Rahman, said the population of Kabul was increasing with each passing day while electricity remained insufficient to meet people’s needs. He asked people to be cautious in power usage with the arrival of winter.
