KESC explains …

July 29, 2008 at 7:29 pm 9 comments

As I was driving home from work today, I heard a KESC rep explain on FM107 that the reason we did not have electricity all of last night was that it drizzled, and as the drops of water touched the dust on the electric cables, 24 grid stations tripped. We have all heard some amazing statements from KESC over the years but this must take the cake! He further said that if it had rained heavily, this would not have happened.

The rain gods must have heard him because minutes later the skies opened up and the rain came pouring down. May I ask KESC to now explain why we still don’t have electricity?

    well it is usually not this bad Junaid. I think they are giving you special treatment. Islamabad has become quite bad of late i hear.

    I think you’ll find this explanation more meaningful, showing just what happens when the power towers get the day off.

    Islamabad has really become quiet bad in terms electricity I experienced it in Feb’08 when it was on schedule of going of for 2-3 times in a day for minimum 2hrs…..

    Hey Zaid,

    I live in F-11 , Islamabad , and never face these issues 🙂 . The only scheduled power outage we had was 30 minutes every day and that’s bearable 😀

    Wow, I heard an exciting news that KESC has stopped buy Oil for the production of Power, Its really nice to know that they dont have Sufficient Funds for purchasing the same. MASHALLAH, though they are used to collect the money on time after privatization, even the Over Billing has rapidly increased and now according to them, they dont have enough funds.

    I would like to ask a question, that Karachi is the most Revenue Generating City of Our Country, having three ports, all the Imports & Exports of the goods are being made possible through these ports, but why this is happening to KARACHI????

    During Last three days, I have changed two Motherboards of my Computer as those boards were SHOCKED by the INCOMING & OUTGOING Calls of power.

    I just want to suggest KESC that please if you dont have funds, then please SHUT DOWN your Organization.
