Loadshedding again in State

Load sheddingLoadshedding was back in the state from 02-06-2014 evening with the KSEB facing an acute shortage of electricity to meet the daily demand. The restriction will be for half-an-hour between 6.45 pm and 10.45 pm on all days until the monsoon intensifies.

A combination of events has forced the KSEB to resort to loadshedding after lifting it early last week. The 340 MW Sabarigiri hydel project is shut down completely for repairs. Adding to KSEB's problems, there is a shortage of 110 MW from the Koodankulam Nuclear Power project (KKNPP) in Tamil Nadu and 64 MW from the NTPC power plant at Ramagundam. Attempts to ward off the crisis through short-term purchases from power traders also fell flat due to non-availability of transmission corridors. The KSEB has also been asked by the central load despatch centre to reduce load in the transmission lines. The state's power situation is such that everything hinges on the monsoon. Water levels in all the hydel dams combined are down to 15 per cent, while the daily consumption is still averaging 60 MU.

The KSEB had imposed half-hour loadshedding on May 21 for 10 days, but had lifted it soon by filling the gap with power purchased from the NTPC's Rajiv Gandhi Combined Cycle Power Project, Kayamkulam.
