NEPRA directs NTDC to restore wind power supply within 10 days

On Friday, the National Electric and Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) instructed the National Transmission & Despatch Company (NTDC) to restart the wind power supply within 10 days.

NEPRA heard a case regarding the closure of the Master Wind (MW) wind power plants for the past five months upon the request of the Pakistan Wind Energy Association.

NEPRA Chairman Tauseef H Farooqi questioned why the government was closing already existing power plants while encouraging alternative energy production.

In response,

The wind energy association stated that they receive capacity charges when the other power plants are shut down and that closing the wind power plant would result in the entire wind industry shutting down.

NEPRA officials noted that the disruption in supply was due to the NTDC’s failure to build transmission lines and grid stations as per the plan.

The chairman directed the NTDC to arrange transmission lines and resume wind power supply at the earliest possible time.

And instructed the National Power Control Center to resolve the issue of electricity generation within 10 days.

Chairman Farooqi emphasized that in a country facing high inflation, cheap electricity generated by wind power is a crucial need for the people.

The directive to resume wind power supply highlights the importance of investing in renewable energy sources to ensure sustainable and affordable energy for all.
