Deccan Chronicle - - CITY - DC COR­RE­SPON­DENT HY­DER­ABAD, OCT. 13

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.
