The Impact and Cost of Power Load Shedding to Domestic Consumers
This paper analyses the impact and cost of the high level of power load shedding to domestic consumers in 2012 by a survey based approach. The paper develops a methodology for quantification of the cost of outages by deriving the utility loss, cost of self-generation and other costs incurred. Overall, the total outage cost to residential consumers in the urban areas of Pakistan is estimated at close to Rs 200 billion. The willingness to pay more for uninterrupted electric supply is also determined. Policy recommendations are made to mitigate the impact of load shedding on domestic consumers.
