Pakistan is currently going through one of the most threatening problems and issues which is the load shedding of Electricity for both domestic and commercial use. This issue has been very devastating for the national economy as the industries have been adversely affected due to this drastic short fall. Currently Pakistan is facing more than 6000 mega watts short fall due to which in the urban areas the load shedding of electricity is being done on a regular schedule of 10-12 hours daily while in the rural areas the situation is even worse as the people living in rural areas the schedule of Load shedding is almost 15-16 hours daily which is just too much and due to this excessive and continuous rising shortfall has made the lives of the people of Pakistan very much problematic. At present Pakistan is producing round about 14,000 mega watts of electricity while the consumption which is ever increasing due to the needs and the high population of the local people has reached 20,000 mega watts so the shortfall of 6000 mega watt is the main and moist crucial reason for this load shedding.
The destructive load shedding which is being done in Pakistan has been frustrating for Pakistani people because it has affected their routine work and the most importantly has affected the businesses which are being processed in the country. Electricity is considered to be one of the most crucial and basic necessity for running any business and industry and its short fall has dented the national economy. Many locals who were running their industries in the state have taken their units out of the country which has significantly reduced the production of the country and the economy which was already very poor has even fallen down to a major extent.
The protest of load shedding has been made all over the country in which various extremist and violent people have even wasted a lot of national property of people and government which has been the threat to the law and order situation of the state. The government on the other hand been poor and very much unrealistic in dealing with the issue and initially they relied on the rental power plants which increased the cost of the electricity and the burden was being made on the shoulders of the local people which were not done. The government has not shown any clear intention of producing and increasing the production on their own my making more production plants active and operative and are still very much focus on importing it which is not the right solution. The federal government of Pakistan has to deal with this issue on high priority basis because this load shedding of electricity is one of most deadly hindrance in between the growth and success of Pakistan.
Wind and Solar Generated Electricity Essay

With the call for an ecological conversion imminent, the need to adopt new techniques for power usage is more urgent than ever. As global warming as a result of Carbon Dioxide emissions becomes at the forefront of all environmental issues, the need for a global metanoia is encouraged. The breakdown of coal to create electricity becomes more and more frowned upon each day by environmental activists, the call for a greater proportion of alternative power such as wind and solar is recommended. The question is often posed as to which alternative energy source is leading the market in terms of efficiency, effectiveness and economy. After thorough research into the physics concepts and economic statistics of solar and wind power sources, it can…show more content…
The Silicon is bonded in a crystalline lattice where electrons are shared in a disassociated manner. When excited by light, these electrons become delocalized, meaning they are free to move throughout the lattice conducting heat and electricity. This concept coincides with the photoelectric effect. This is where in certain instances, when the incoming photon has an extremely large amount of energy, it can cause the electron to absorb so much energy that it’s blasted off of its parent atom entirely (Sargosis, 2014). This theory only applies with extremely high-energy light such as ultraviolet or UV rays from the sun. So, a limitation associated with solar energy is that high-energy UV rays must be present and therefore energy production is most productive on hot days with a high UV index. (Mention phosphorus)
1.2 Wind Power
Similarly, wind energy is limited to days where wind is available to produce energy. The process of wind energy involves a wind turbine which is a propeller like device suspended in the air. As wind flows past the blades, the kinetic energy of the wind rotates the blades and thus the rotor. The rotor is connected to a drive shaft using a gear box. When the rotor spins, the shaft spins as well. In this way, the rotor transfers its mechanical, rotational energy to the shaft. At this stage of the process the high powered shaft converts the 30-60 rotations per minute of the rotor into 1000-1800 rotations per minute which is what
