DEMAND OF POWER IS 10,500 MW
Cyclone Titli has damaged the power grid in the north-south corridor. Therefore, the availability of power supply to southern states including Telangana state has been affected, said GENCO CMD Mr Prabhakar Rao.
The state has recorded a peak consumption of 10,818 MW due to newly added load from Metro rail, Kaleswaram Lift Irrigation project and free 24 x 7 power supply to the farming sector. "On an average, the power demand is 10,500 MW. A loss of 3,000 MW would have to be made good by producing full capacity at Thermal and Hydel facilities", said Mr. Rao.
