The power availability from HPGCL’s own sources is about 2050MW and total power available is around 4325 MW. The maximum power demand in the state is around 5052 MW.
The state is overdrawing from grid to a limited extent as other states are not resorting to power over drawing. On Sunday, the state overdrew about 80 lac units by 1PM.
Most parts of Haryana, including major cities are facing more than 6 to 8 hour power cuts. Industrial consumers faced longer power cuts over and above the scheduled six-hour shut down. The only exception is Kurukshetra where the Gita Jayanti Samaroh is going on.
It may be added that despite sufficient capacity addition the performance of units at Yamuna Nagar & Khedar is suffering due to quality of Chinese equipment used by Reliance, said a spokesperson of All India Power Engineers Federation.
