Delhi is the most power-hungry metro
DELHI CONSUMES more electricity than the states of Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Chhattisgarh, Kerala, Bihar, Jharkhand, Odisha, and all states of the North East, suggests the latest report by the Central government agency Central Electricity Authority. The report also highlights that the capital uses more power than all the other metros put together. It suggests that households are primarily responsible for the alarmingly high consumption of power. Delhi's household electricity consumption per capita is about 43 units per month against a national average of 25. This might be because the domestic power tariff in Delhi is the lowest among all metros.
