Power supply at comfort level ..

The Tamil Nadu Electricity Board, Coimbatore Region, is hopeful of meeting the demand the next few months without increasing the load shedding timing from the current level. An official of the board told that the total electricity consumption in the region was approximately 20 million units at the sub-station end for 24 hours.


Over 60 per cent of the demand in the region was from High Tension connections. The region included Tirupur and Dharapuram too. The scheduled load shedding for domestic connections now was two hours during day time. Except for break down, emergency work or tripping there was no unscheduled disruption in the supply now. The board was constantly monitoring and reviewing the situation. Penalty was levied on industrial and commercial connections that violated the peak hour restriction. The demand and supply in the region now was “comfortable.”

Consumption could go up during peak summer when the use of air conditioners, agriculture pumpsets and humidification plants in textile units escalate. The agricultural load would reduce with rain. “We are confident we will meet the demand provided there is no major set back in generation,” the official said.
