Power Shortage - TNEB to buy Power from NTPC and Reliance infra

Power Shortage - TNEB to buy Power from NTPC  and Reliance infra
To meet the serious power shortage, the Tamil Nadu government has decided to purchase power from private and public sector companies. With the state’s demand for power touching 9,000 MW a day during peak hours, it faces a shortfall of about 2,000 MW. The state Government is resorting to buying power through open bids to make the process transparent, as the energy transfer would take place during the crucial months in the run-up to the Lok Sabha election early next year.


Responding to tenders floated by the Tamil Nadu Electricity Board (TNEB) in November, the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) and Reliance infrastructure, a unit of the Reliance Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group, have participated in the bids to sell about 500 MW of power to the crisis-hit state during January to June 2009.
