CMD PUNJAB State Power Corporation Limited A Venu Prasad unveiled that Punjab state power corporation limited has purchased 879 MW from power exchange to meet the surge in power demand in the state due to hot summer and paddy
season. Punjab State Power Corporation Limited has made preparations to meet demand up to 13,700 MW.
The acquisition of power from exchange is mainly because of failure of one unit of Talwandi Sabo thermal plant at Mansa.
PSPCL recorded consumption of 2901 lakh units on June 22 in the present paddy season. The CMD said the demand is likely to increase further in the coming week.
PSPCL has operationalized all the four units of GHTP Lehra Mohabbat, three units of GGSSTP Ropar and all the accessible units of IPPs. Closely 850 MW of power is being contributed by hydel power stations of PSPCL to meet the paddy demand.
