Residents get rid of power crisis at last

However, the Pakhtunkhwa Energy Development Organization (PEDO) still seemed not forthcoming in signing an agreement with WAPDA to provide electricity from the 108 megawatt powerhouse built by the federal government to supply power to Upper Chitral where PEDO owns the transmission lines. Golen Gol powerhouse project director Javed Afridi said electricity from the site was shifted to Jutilast grid station on Tuesday morning from where after a series of tests it was transferred to the transmission lines of Peshawar Electric Supply Company in Chitral town and surrounding areas. He said the electricity was being supplied to the areas in the town in phases and this process would continue till Drosh and other areas are also connected to the system. He said the first 36 MW of the project was ready for inauguration, the second unit of 36 MW would be ready in March and the third unit of 36 MW in May. The electricity of Golen would be put in the national grid at Chakdara in Aug. MNA Shahzada Iftikharuddin credited former prime minister Nawz Sharif with the completion of the power project and allocating over 30 megawatts for Chitral to resolve its longstanding power crisis.]]>
