Kuwait Warns of Major Power Cuts as 52-Degree Heat Hits Electricity Supply

Kuwait has announced there could be major power cuts in the country as extreme summer heat hits electricity supply in the country.

Systematic power cuts could take place if needed, the Ministry of Electricity, Water and Renewable Energy announced on Thursday.

The potential power cuts in Kuwait would start from 11am to 5pm and for one to two hours. The ministry’s social media platforms will announce the timings per area an hour before, said a ministry statement.

Some parts of Kuwait were left without electricity on Wednesday as a power outage exacerbated the scorching summer conditions, while emergency teams were hard at work to restore power to affected areas.

The ministry blamed soaring temperatures, which have reached 52 degrees, for the power cuts.

It has also called on the public to limit consumption during peak hours in order to ensure uninterrupted supply.
