The state government, MSEDCL, has given a clear signal that load shedding is inevitable in the state due to rising demand for electricity, declining production of MNC due to coal scarcity and expensive power to be procured from outside. MSEDCL has said that it is facing shortage of about 3000 MW of electricity every day.
Due to heating of wool in the state, consumption of industrial and agricultural pumps has also increased along with domestic electricity consumption. As a result, the demand for electricity has gone up to a record 28,000 MW. The demand for electricity in Mumbai is around 3200 to 3500 MW. With the exception of Mumbai, MSEDCL’s area of operation has increased by 4,000 MW as compared to the previous year. For the last fortnight, the demand for electricity from Mahavitaran has been consistently between 24,500 to 24,800 MW. Given the rising demand for electricity, the demand is likely to reach 25,500 MW soon. At the same time, even during the night period, the demand is 22,500 to 23,000 MW, says Mahavitaran.
A total of 33,700 MW of electricity can be supplied to MSEDCL; But out of that 21 thousand 057 MW or 62% of the electricity is from thermal power plants. Power projects are currently facing coal shortage. As a result, the thermal power generation contracted by MSEDCL has declined. As some thermal sets are closed for maintenance and repair, MSEDCL is currently getting less than 6,000 MW of power from thermal power generation.
Purchase agreement for electricityMSEDCL has entered into an agreement with National Thermal Power Corporation to purchase 673 MW of electricity per day till June 15 to make up the shortfall. Coastal Gujarat Power Limited (CGPL) has approved purchase of 760 MW power. Fortunately, 415 MW of electricity has been made available; But even after that, MSEDCL has to buy electricity from the open market. The state government’s MSEDCL has warned that load shedding will have to be done as it is expensive.
Appeal for power saving
Mahavitaran is currently facing a power deficit of 2500 to 3000 MW. According to the criteria approved by the Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission, some power lines in urban and rural areas may have to be overloaded in the near future. To avoid this, consumers should cooperate and use electricity very sparingly, an appeal has been made by ‘Mahavitaran’.
