The summer is yet to reach its peak and the Gurgaon residents have already started dealing with difficulties with power cuts, especially the residents of DLF Phase III, who are facing a hard time due to the recurrent outages and low-voltage supply.
A hardware failure on
Monday night affected a high-tension cable, tripping electricity
supply to parts of U and V blocks which was later resolved. For some
time now, the residents have been complaining of deteriorating power
scenario. DHBVN, as reported by timesofindia.com, said that power
availability was not an issue in the area, and that the supply to
this part of the city was usually uninterrupted.
Rajesh Nandal, a discom
official said “The main problem in this area has to do with
overload conditions. This is why the voltage profile often goes down
and there are breakdowns.” He also said that plans to bifurcate the
existing feeder stations in DLF III were in the works.
Adding that a timeline for
the project was undecided, he also said “We also have to set up a
new transformer here, for which we are in talks with private
conditions for the low standards of power supply to Phase III, a DLF
representative said “We have sent a list of commercial outlets and
other facilities which are overdrawing on their allotted share of
electricity to the discom,”
Sudhir Kapoor, DLF City
RWA's secretary general said that one other cause for the residents
power woes was an overhead supply cable, which has suffered repeated
breakdowns in the past.
He also said. “There are
parts of Phase III which face power supply troubles, mostly caused by
this overhead cable. The decision has already been taken by the task
force committee, on which I am the residents' representative, to take
it underground and 90 per cent of the supply problems will be
resolved once that happens.”
