As the winter season intensifies, residents of Bahria Enclave brace for a structured load shedding schedule, effective throughout December 2023. The power management strategy, aimed at ensuring a balanced energy distribution, impacts various sectors, including A, B, C, C1, C2, C3, E, F, G, H, I, J, M, N, and the Head Office.
The load shedding program is meticulously planned to minimize disruptions in daily life. Power outages will occur for one hour following every two hours of uninterrupted electricity supply. This schedule is in effect from 0900 hrs to 2100 hrs daily, providing residents with a predictable pattern to plan their activities.

The schedule encompasses a wide range of sectors, each uniquely impacted by this temporary shift in power availability. Residents in sectors A through N, along with those operating or residing near the Head Office, are advised to prepare accordingly.
Strategies for Adaptation:
- Planning Ahead: Residents are encouraged to schedule energy-intensive tasks during periods when power is available. This includes charging electronic devices, using appliances, and completing any work requiring a stable power source.
- Alternative Energy Sources: The utilization of alternative energy sources, such as solar panels or generators, can provide a seamless transition during power outages.
- Community Support: Neighbors can collaborate, sharing resources like generators or forming support groups to assist those who may need additional help, such as the elderly or those with medical needs that rely on electricity.
- Safety Measures: It’s crucial to practice safety when using candles or other temporary lighting solutions. Ensure that these items are away from flammable materials and are extinguished when not in use.
To alleviate the inconvenience caused by the load shedding schedule, a backup power supply will be provided during the night. This measure aims to ensure that residents have access to electricity for essential needs, including lighting and heating, during the colder night hours.
While the load shedding schedule in Bahria Enclave may pose challenges, it is a necessary step towards sustainable energy management. Residents are encouraged to approach this period with flexibility and community spirit, supporting one another as the enclave navigates through these temporary changes. With careful planning and cooperation, the impact of these power outages can be significantly mitigated, ensuring that daily life continues with minimal disruption.
