Through last three decades, an invisible transformation took place in the power network across the rural Sindh. Almost all parts of rural Sindh witnessed the slow pace of changing from the main grid to an indigenous power network assisted by the power storage devices, diesel generators, PV and wind turbines. The chaotic and random feature of this slow disruption have now reached at a visible peak, removing the main grid from the rural Sindh altogether. The signs of the old main grid can be visible as one travels through the landscape. One wonders how this disruption took its toll on the periled main grid. The paper discusses causes, and consequences of this chaotic disruption and its impact on the future of microgrid across the region, where the multiphase power development is taken over by the customer completely.
