Govt not resorting to load-shedding: DKS 23.4.2014 deccanherald.com
Energy Minister D K Shivakumar on Tuesday said the government had neither resorted to load-shedding anywhere in the State nor was it planning to do it in the coming days. Speaking to reporters after taking stock of the supply-demand situation of power, he said the State had excess availability of power against the demand. While the demand is 168 million units (MU), the supply is 208 MU. The current situation does not warrant load-shedding. Power utilities are cutting the supply in some places due to technical problems related to transmission, he said. The government has taken necessary steps to ensure effective supply of power this summer. Water level in hydel reservoirs of the State are enough for generating power for the next 70 days. All units of the thermal power stations are functioning effectively. The government is currently supplying power 24/7 in urban areas and 18 hours (seven hours three phase and 11 hours single phase) in rural areas, he said. Besides, the government has invoked Section 11 of ...

Bescom says tariff revision necessary for more revenue 22.4.2014 deccanherald.com
The Bangalore Electricity Supply Company (Bescom) has submitted that the revision of tariff is necessary to bridge the revenue gap of over Rs 1,500 crore. Bescom has cited the increase in power purchase cost, change in consumption pattern and non-realisation of approved tariff as the reasons. In his presentation before the Karnataka Electricity Regulatory Commission (KERC), Pankaj Kumar Pandey, Managing Director, Bescom, said: "The cost to purchase power has increased so much that about 78 per cent of the total expenditure was spent on it. As much as Rs 9,624 crore was spent from a budget of Rs 12,323 crore."

Pandey said that there was a sharp increase in the cost of thermal power due to the use of imported coal and transportation costs. "Imported coal is being used due to ...
