  • Investors in the Jhimpir Wind Corridor are alarmed as their projects have now suffered an unprecedented shutdown of six consecutive days since the federal government halted all offtake from their wind farms.
  • The Jhimpir Wind Corridor has total installed capacity of 980MW.
  • Three plants in Gharo, adjacent to Jhimpir but closer to the coastline, are seeing continuing offtake because the K-Electric is continuing its purchases of renewable energy.
