Pakistan records highest ever electricity generation of its history

ISLAMABAD – Energy Minister Hammad Azhar had said that Pakistan achieved the highest generation of electricity in the country's history at 24,284MW on Wednesday.

The announcement comes at a time when the ruling PTI is under fire political rivals and public over power outage amid sweltering heat.

"Highest demand & supply of power in the history of Pakistan achieved today at 24,284MW. It reflects not just higher demand & generation but also increased transmission capacity," Hammad wrote in a Twitter post.

He said that in contrast, the highest generation and transmission achieved before the PTI govt was in July 2018 at 20,811MW.

"This new record has been set despite the fact that Pakistan's biggest dam, Tarbela, is producing just 25% of its output this year during peak season," he said in another tweet.
