Non Electric Poles in Pakistan
Sunday, August 2, 2009
Here are some pictures of electric poles and cables. It would be more suitable to call them "Non Electric Poles", as the electricity pass through these poles and cables just for 6 hours a day. Among other crises Pakistan facing, one and probably the major problem is electricity shortage. This shortage is compensated by load shedding during which the electricity is cut off for about 18 hours in a day. There is no specific time or schedule for load shedding. The load shedding is directly proportion to hot weather. Here I'm not going to discuss the inverse effects of electricity shortage on economy. Actually I don't have factories for which I need electricity nor I have AC installed in my house. The 160 million people of Pakistan including me just need electricity to run a fan.
