Coal shortage forces Karnataka govt to tap hydel power 25.11.2017 deccanherald.com
Coal shortage, coupled with rising demand, has forced the Energy Department to tap into hydel sources, but that might lead to a tougher summer. The other options are buying additional power or load-shedding. With the state going to the polls next year, the second option is ruled out. The department is already purchasing 900 MW a day until March. If it goes for further purchase, the burden on the exchequer will be substantial. As a result, the department has turned to drawing an average of 15 million units (MU) from the three major hydel stations, as against the stipulated 10 MU. According to officials in the State Load Dispatch Centre (SLDC), Chief Secretary Subhash Chandra Khuntia had directed the department not to draw more than 10 MU from hydel stations. But after the Karnataka Power Corporation Ltd (KPCL) downgraded its supply from the thermal stations, the department made it clear to the government that drawing power from hydel stations is inevitable. The KPCL recently downgraded its supply by ...

She was speaking at the district-level workshop on "Vision 2025" organsied at Shridevi Medical College in the city on Wednesday.
