what are the Current demands and supply potentialities?
In the year 2011-12 the total power generation is 27,941 million units. The purchases from Central Government Power, Plants and Windmill harvesting, and purchases from open market were 49 thousand, 277 million units thousand 277 million units. In the same period the total electric consumption was 77 thousand218 million units.
The study shows that as on March, 2012 the total existing power consumers are 2 crore, 31 Lakh and 37thousand. Therefore, there arises a need (Demand) for electric power consumption that works out to 240 to 260 million units per day.
The State currently has 1,361 auxiliary power sectors in service.
The State Power Generations, the contribution from Central government, and States complete energy sources including non-conventional power segments accounts for total power volume is 17 thousand 936 megawatts only.
A glimpse to the plight
The State average stock. 8,500 MW.
The Statet's Demand 11,500 MW to 12,500 MW
Shortage in power supply 3000-4000 MW
11 thousand 500MW to and 12 thousand to 500MW thousand are in demand, but shortage is from 3,000 to 4,000 MW.
