Load shedding was implemented to save money. It also saves pollution.
Load shedding is what electric utilities do when there is a huge demand for electricity that exceeds the generation available. The alternative is to have a brown-out where the voltage is reduced.
It costs a lot to have generators...
NUMBER OF WAYS TO REDUCE ENERGY WASTE:
1. Replace old light bulbs with new florescent bulbs.
2. Turn off the lights when not in use. Never leave electrical appliances on a standby.
3. Avoid using dryers in the washing machine since they consume huge amount of electricity when switched on.

capacity for generation of the required energy sources. Now, the demand exceeds supply and hence “load-shedding” is a common phenomenon through frequent power shutdowns. Pakistan needs about 14000-15000MW electricity per day, and the demand is likely to rise to approximately 20,000 MW per day by 2010. Presently...
