We provide electricity to Karachi, the ‘City of Lights’, which is home to over 20 million people.
K-Electric Limited caters to the city’s 6,500 square kilometres and supplies electricity to all the industrial, commercial, agricultural and residential areas that come under its network. The organisation has 2.5 million customer accounts in Karachi, Dhabeji and Gharo in Sindh, and Hub, Uthal, Vindar and Bela in Balochistan.
We are the only vertically-integrated power utility in Pakistan, which means we manage all three key stages – generation, transmission and distribution – of producing and delivering energy to our consumers. K-Electric is also one of the city’s largest employers, with nearly 11,000 members of staff.
Formerly known as Karachi Electric Supply Company Limited, the organisation was established over a hundred years ago and is an integral part of one of the world’s most populous cities. In 2009, Abraaj acquired a controlling stake in KES Power Limited, the majority shareholder, beginning a turnaround which has thus far seen investments of over USD 1.2 billion. Our transition to K-Electric in the face of numerous challenges has become a case study in business excellence and transformation, and we continue to work hard to take KE forward and earn the trust of all our stakeholders.
We are proud to have become one of the most dynamic institutions in the country – but our aspiration is to continuously improve and serve Karachi with even greater vigour and purpose.
