State power department Saturday said power supply was likely to improve only after the onset of monsoon. The department admitted that it was unable to provide stable power throughout the state for quite sometime due to limited availability of power. “Power from all sources is only about 25 MW against the requirement of 80 MW during peak hours (day time) for entire state and about 62 MW against the requirement of 110 MW during peak hours (night time),” explained the chief engineer (CE) power department. The CE also pointed out that at lean season hydro power stations located in the northeast, from where most the state’s power requirements was met, were generating less power. Asserting that it was very concerned with the inconveniences caused to consumers including small-scale industrial units, the power department, however, said with the shortage of power it was not possible to do away with load shedding. Meanwhile, the department, acknowledging the inconvenience caused to the consumers, further requested cooperation from all.
