Karachi, the capital city of Pakistan, and its surrounding areas are all dealing with a power struggle. Rural communities have high expenses when using generators or aren’t even connected to the national grid, and even the capital city is dealing with blackout issues. It’s why more people are turning to solar energy for a power source.
In Pakistan’s capital city, citizens have seen an increase in blackouts thanks to public dispute between their power utility company, K-Electric, and their main gas supplier, Sui Southern Gas Company. Power can be turned off for up to eight hours in a day, forcing some companies to lay off workers and people have to deal with the hot temperatures.
