Delhi is also dependent on others for electricity

Be it Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan… the whole of North India experiences intense heat. In such heat, the only support of people is water and electricity. These two things bring relief to people, but think what would happen if both of them lead to crisis. The same is happening in Delhi, the capital of the country. Not only was there a shortage of water, the electricity crisis had also started. It is Delhi’s misfortune that it has to depend on others for both these things.

The water issue has reached the Supreme Court. Now the power struggle has also started. In fact, a fire broke out at a power grid sub-station in Uttar Pradesh’s Mandola on Tuesday, leading to power cuts in many parts of Delhi. Atishi, a minister in the Delhi government, also informed this to Energy Minister Manohar Lal Khattar.

In a letter to Khattar, Atishi said that due to the grid failure at 2.11 pm on Tuesday, many areas of Delhi like Wazirabad, Kashmiri Gate, Geeta Colony, Harsh Vihar, Rajghat, Narela and Gopalpur faced power cut for 2 hours. faced. He demanded Khattar to take action on this so that such situation does not arise again in future.

Delhi is dependent on others not only for water but also for electricity.

Delhi is dependent on others not only for water but also for electricity. The power grid that caught fire in UP’s Mandola supplies 1500 MW of electricity to Delhi. Not only this, 756 MW electricity is available from NTP Dadri in Uttar Pradesh and 728 MW electricity is available from NTPC Dadri-2. Delhi gets 693 MW of electricity from Jhajjar thermal plant in Haryana. Besides, 446 MW from Sasan, 358 MW from NTPC Rihand, 300 MW from NTPC Singrauli, 157 MW from Kahalgaon, 142 MW from SJVNL Nathpa Zakari, 100 MW from NTPC Unchahar and several other power plants are available.

Delhi gets electricity from more than 50 generating units across the country. It also requires huge transmission lines, so that electricity can reach the capital. The government has also invested heavily in the transmission network.

A few years ago, Delhi’s dependence on coal-fired thermal power plants was very high, but now it has reduced significantly. Although more than 50% of the total electricity demand is met by coal-fired power plants, the picture is changing rapidly.
