Pakistan has turned down a proposed plan of Turkmenistan to build a separate transmission line for electricity export and asked it to join the Central Asia South Asia (CASA) 1,000-megawatt power supply project.

The Central Asia South Asia Regional Electricity Market is planned to be developed in phases by making institutional arrangements and developing the necessary infrastructure. It will bring some of Central Asia’s power resources to South Asia, which faces energy shortages and growing demand.” (The Express Tribune)

Discussion

If CASA really kicks off, we might end up load shedding free. A continuous power supply will increase Pakistan’s productivity immensely. From homes, schools, work places, to industrial production, productivity and life style will have a positive impact.
