Electricity Crisis in Delhi: There may be a power shortage in Delhi. Tata Power has sent a message to the consumers. The statement has said that the supply will be affected from 2 pm to 6 pm. In the northern part of Delhi, only Tata Power supplies the electricity. According to the information, the power crisis has come to the fore due to the coal supply.
The reason for the power crisis is believed to be the shortage of coal. One hundred thirty-five power plants run on coal in the country. Only two to four days’ stock is left in these plants. Coal produces 70 per cent of the electricity in the country.
Tata Power has sent a message to the consumers of Delhi that there may be a power shortage from 2 pm to 6 pm. So use electricity carefully. According to the information, the plants may come to a standstill due to a lack of coal. Meanwhile, the company has appealed to the consumers to exercise restraint during this period.
Fear of blackout in Delhi
It is feared that due to the shortage of coal, there may be a blackout in Delhi. Tata Power supplies electricity only in the northern part of Delhi. Three days ago, Energy Minister RK Singh told Spot News 18 that the situation would return to normal by the third week of October.
The process of normalization of the situation will start from the first week. He had told the reason for the worsening of the condition that Corona has affected the power plant. Second, Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh have received rains in the past, due to which the production of coal has decreased. The country had 81 lakh tonnes of storage till September. With this, the price of coal has also increased in the world.
