- Coal shortage in the country is getting worse.
- Discussion on whether there will be a power cut in Kerala.
- Critical review meeting chaired by the Chief Minister today.
Although various issues will be discussed at the meeting chaired by the Chief Minister, the main consideration will be whether there should be a power cut. At the national level, the acute shortage of coal is exacerbating the power crisis in Kerala. KSEB’s move is to ask BPCL for fuel for the operation of the Kozhikode diesel thermal power plant.
The minister had yesterday ruled out the possibility of a power cut in the state. It was supposed to get a thousand megawatts from the center but it was reduced. At the same time, the amount of power received from other states has decreased. Koodam gets only 30% of its electricity from the pond. He said a power cut would be needed if the situation continued. He added that the power cut would not affect the industrial sector.
KSEB is closely monitoring the power crisis. He said that KSEB has asked the people to control the use of electricity. Although the power consumption in Kerala is declining on a large scale due to the continuing rains, it is estimated that if the crisis continues next summer, there will be a severe shortage of electricity. Due to the shortage of coal, the supply of electricity to Kerala has also come down. For the time being, Kerala is overcoming the crisis by purchasing power from the energy exchange.
According to reports, the crisis has intensified in Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Punjab, Delhi, Andhra Pradesh and Odisha. Power cuts have also been imposed in Punjab and Rajasthan. Electricity regulation imposed in rural areas in UP. The situation is similar in Delhi. The states of Delhi, Gujarat, Punjab, Rajasthan, Delhi and Tamil Nadu have issued blackout warnings. According to the central government, there will be an improvement in coal supply soon. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in this regard. He warned that the national capital would “face a blackout” in the next two days if the supply of coal to power plants did not improve.
The oil ministry has said it will supply gas for production at two power plants in Delhi. According to national media reports, unofficial power cuts of up to 14 hours have been reported in many states. The government claims that there is enough power, but the media reports that the power cut is severe.
