Soaring Coal Shortage Takes Maharashtra To Brink Of Compulsory Power Cuts

Mumbai: After many years, Maharashtra is staring at compulsory power cuts as demand is higher than supply, the state discom announced on Monday, pegging the shortages at over 2,500 mw. The "load shedding", which entails compulsory power cuts in select areas, will be carried out both in urban and rural areas, the Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company said in a statement. The growing demand for power and shortages of coal have resulted in a deficit of 2,500-3,000 mw in power. To bridge the same, MSEDCL will be resorting to load shedding as per the guidelines set by Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission, the statement said. It, however, did not specify any other details on the areas where the power cut will be experienced or its durations. The state, which otherwise prides itself on being one of the most progressive ones and home to industry, was notorious for load shedding till a few years ago. A large part of the country's financial capital does not fall under MSEDCL's service area, and those pockets were excluded from load shedding in the past instances. The MSEDCL statement said there is a record demand for over 28,000 mw of power, which is about 4,000 mw higher than last year's. MSEDCL's demand alone has touched up to 24,800 mw and the night demand is also up to 23,000 mw. The MSEDCL has contracted 37,900 mw of power, of which 33,700 mw is installed capacity and 62 per cent of this comes from the coal-fired thermal power plants, the statement said.
