The peak power demand in Telangana has spiked to an all-time high of 13,168 MW on Friday, surpassing the demand of 13,162 MW of the combined Andhra Pradesh recorded on March 23, 2014. The State’s per capita consumption of 1,896 units of electricity, a growth indicator, has exceeded the country’s average of 1,181 units.
This is a significant achievement because a few persons would often warn that Telangana will be pushed to darkness if the new state is carved as there are very few Power Plants in the state. However, KCR Government ensured that there are no power cuts in the state.
Moreover, Telangana 24-hour power to the agriculture sector including various lift irrigation schemes and meets the increased industrial demand as fresh capacity has been added over the past five years. On the production front, Telangana has a captive power generation capacity of 16,246 MW now is up from 7,778 MWs in 2014.
The solar capacity has gone up from 74 MWs to 3,650 MWs now. The only concerning thing is the poor financial health of the discoms due to massive power purchases.
