Load Shedding means the suspension of the supply of electricity for a certain period. It mainly occurs when there is a shortage of supply than demand. Load-shedding has become a regular affair in our country. There are many causes of load shedding.
The insufficient production of electricity is the main cause of load-shedding. Misuse of electricity is another cause. Illegal connection of electricity is also responsible for load-shedding. Due to load-shedding production in mills and factories decreases. Fresh food preserved in the refrigerator gets rotten. Load- shedding at night encourages the miscreants in their criminal activities. Students cannot study properly due to load-shedding.
Frequent load-shedding during the summer makes life unbearable. Electricity is the driving force of all kinds of machines on which modern life is greatly dependent. Therefore, any disruption in the supply of electricity paralyzes normal activities of life. So, the authority should establish more power plants and powerhouses to solve this problem. Illegal connection and system loss should also be stopped. It is good news that our present government is trying sincerely to solve this problem.
