The weaving and drying and bleaching, the washing, the winding and the chemical treating at Kohinoor Mills -- all of it needs energy. Lots of it. But in a country where daily blackouts are the norm, Fayyaz said he can't depend on his government to ensure he has a reliable supply of electricity to keep 1,500 people employed and get his clothing to places like Gap and Old Navy.
