PSEBPunjab State Electricity Board (PSEB) has tied up with the West Bengal government for procuring 100 mw of power on the basis of banking arrangement, a step which could ease the problem of power shortage to some extent in the state. In addition to it, the board would also get further 100 mw of energy after getting a corridor from West Bengal.

Disclosing this, a spokesman said that with these arrangements, PSEB would relax the duration of power cuts from 8-9 hours to 4 hours in the domestic sector in the state.

He further informed that all the thermal stations of PSEB were generating power to its capacity and the repair of Lehra Mohabat Plant had also been completed.

The power availability in the state during the current year was 7.3 per cent more than that in the last year despite odd weather conditions, whereas the demand for power increased by 31 per cent that of the last year’s.

However, PSEB has received 225 mw and 75 mw lesser power from the Bhakhra Dem and Dehar Hydral Project respectively, due to the scanty rainfall, he said.
