Despite discontinuation of supply of contracted 1,424 MW power by Adani Power Ltd and a part of the contracted 400 MW power by Coastal Gujarat Power Ltd (CGPL), there is no shortage of power in Haryana owing to better generation at state’s own plants and other arrangements.

The CGPL is supplying 220 MW power to the state daily against the contracted 400 MW.

A Haryana Power Utilities spokesman said adequate arrangements have been made to ensure up to 10,625 MW of power supply during June to September. These include banking arrangements, power purchase agreements and long-term arrangements. The state still has scope to have additional power from Indira Gandhi Super Thermal Power Station, Jhajjar, and gas-based plant, Faridabad.

He said the peak power demand is about 7,500 MW and the distribution companies were supplying power as per the schedule. Referring to availability of coal for thermal power plants, the spokesman said sufficient coal stock was available to run the plants for 10 days. Simultaneously, the plants were getting coal regularly from Coal India Ltd and other sources, he said.
