CEA report says Haryana may be power deficient in summer
Haryana's state run thermal units may be lying idle for most of time in a year due to no demand but the state is going to be power deficient in summer.
According to Load Generation Balance Report of Central Electricity Authority (CEA) the state is going to face minimum monthly shortage of 200 to 300 million units. This assessment has been based upon normal monsoon and not on metrological department's latest prediction of 88% with 5% deviation of normal rainfall. The rainfall shortage in southern Haryana is going to be more as compared to northern Haryana.

As per the CEA report overall in the financial year 2015-16 Haryana will be power surplus as power availability will be 52571million units (MU) against requirement of 48870MU. However the power supply in July will be 5505 MU in July against restricted demand of 5670 MU. The position will worsen in August as the power availability will be 5530 MU against demand of 5800MU.

The power demand in summer is going to increase due to deficient rainfall and so will increase power cuts in the state during the month of July and August.

The assessment of the anticipated power supply position in the Haryana during the year 2015-16 is taking into consideration the generation from generating plants owned by the State, share of Power from the common projects, allocation of firm power from Central Generating Stations, allocation from unallocated quota of power from Central Generating Stations as per the allocation in vogue and energy import/ export under long term bilateral agreements including that from IPPs.

Haryana share from central sector projects is 2565 MW including 1980 MW of firm power. The share from unallocated power is 479 MW. Haryana is purchasing 1424 MW of power from Adani under long term power purchase agreement.

The prediction also takes into account the scheduled maintenance of thermal units.The unscheduled breakdown due to technical faults has not been accounted for. During paddy season one unit of CLP Jhajjar plant will under maintenance from may 16 to June 6 and one unit of Panipat thermal from July 16 to August 9.

The maximum power demand in the state will be around 9300 MW against availability of 9799 MW in August.
