Gujranwala Electric Power Company Limited (GEPCO) – Vision & Mission
The Gujranwala Electric Power Company Limited (GEPCO) was established from the former Area Electricity Board’s jurisdiction and infrastructure development network, which was established in the early 1980s. The new neighborhood includes Gujranwala, Hafizabad, Sialkot, Narowal, Gujrat, and Mandi Bahauddin.
GEPCO was established on April 25, 1998, and received its articles of registration on June 5, 1998. Management and administration are overseen by a Board of Directors (BOD).
The Government of Pakistan (GOP) agreed in the 1960s to create a separate and decentralized Authority to deal with all available water resources as well as the power system network, which included power generation, transmission, and delivery.
The Water And Power Development Authority (WAPDA), Pakistan’s second-largest organization after the Pakistan Army, was created. WAPDA’s power distribution network was split into two Area Electricity Boards (AEB) in the 1980s, and Gujranwala was one of the AEBs amongst those various Electricity Boards dealing with electrical power.
WAPDA was split into two major sectors in 1998, PEPCO and WAPDA. WAPDA was limited to dealing only with water resources and hydro-generation, while PEPCO (Pakistan Electric Power Company) was identified as the total in-charge/company of Thermal Energy (GENCOs: Generation Companies), Transmitting (NTDC: National Transmission & Transfer Company), and Distribution (DISOs: Distribution Companies).
PEPCO was established as a temporary in-charge company for GENCOs, NTDCs, and DISCOs, with the intention of being dismantled once these companies began totally independent under the auspices of their respective BODs (Board of Directors)
