Power demand in Delhi soars to all-India high

Power demand in Delhi soars to all-India high

The soaring mercury level has pushed Delhi's power demand to an all-time high. The capital's peak consumption demand at 3.06pm on June 5 touched 6,361MW, the highest ever recorded in any city of India. The last time Delhi set an all-time record was on June 30, 2016 when the electricity demand shot up to 6,261MW.

Discoms have estimated this year's peak power demand to cross 6,500-6,600MW. With rising demand, the chances of power failures also go up. According to experts, the electricity network does not get sufficient time to cool down in the peak summer season, leading to breakdowns and outages. "High demand puts a stress on the network and at times, leads to local faults. Additionally, lack of space to augment the electricity network can impact power supply. This is a concern, especially in unauthorised colonies," said an expert.
