Breshna Sherkat urges to avoid power overload

Da Afghanistan Breshan Sherkat (DABS) called on Kabul residents to reduce their power usage in order to prevent power blackout during winter.

“If people continue using electric heaters in their homes, we will have to increase the power cuts,” said Head of Kabul Breshna Abdul Wakil Naseri.

He stressed that currently, Naghlo, Mahipar and Sorobi power plants provide 80 Megawatts of electricity to Kabul while 260 megawatts is being imported from Uzbekistan.
He believes that if the residents decrease their power usage between 5:00pm and 10:00pm – considered to be the peak hours – there will be no power cuts.

      I would tell you to sit back, take your time and compare Afghanistan’s power situation today with a couple years back. Today, 70% of Kabul have access to electricity. This should tell you how much DABS has achieved. But, power to you Sir! You have all the right to say what you want to say! 🙂

      Some of your provinces have electricity if not all, security being the main reason why. Yes, millions of AFS are going to the neighboring countries, but those same freaking neighboring countries refuse to fix a cable when it is disconnected. DABS had to pay them to get the cable running over Amu-River fixed. Afghanistan would have been able to accomplish a better power system, had DABS’ former officials two years ago did half of the work DABS’ current officials are doing. As far as Ministry of Energy and Water is concerned, I think you are well aware of Ismail Khan’s reputation/power among the mass.
