    Karnataka energy dept directs power supply companies to ensure no load-shedding this summer

    March 15, 2023 - Express News Service


      The energy department has instructed KPTCL and all ESCOMS to take necessary actions to meet the rising demand.

      Keeping in view the interest of students and farmers, five electricity supply companies (ESCOMS — BESCOM, MESCOM, HESCOM, GESCOM and CESC Mysore) will ensure that there is no load-shedding in Karnataka for the next three months.

      The decision was taken in a meeting of the ESCOMs on Monday. It was headed by BESCOM MD Mahantesh Bilagi, who is also the power-trading committee chairman for all the ESCOMs, and attended by the managing directors of all the ESCOMs.

      With the commencement of SSLC and PUC exams, power demand is at its peak during the summer. Farmers have also requested for uninterrupted supply of power. The energy department has instructed KPTCL and all ESCOMS to take necessary actions to meet the rising demand.

      The ESCOMs have carried out a scientific study on power requirements for the next three months. Based on this, the energy department ensured the availability of generation of power and directed the KPTCL and ESCOMs to have constraint-free transmission and distribution network in their jurisdiction, and not to resort the unscheduled load-shedding at any level of transmission and distribution, BESCOM MD stated.
