Haryana authorities have claimed that power generation in the state is more than consumption.

Talking to media persons, power utilities superintendent RK Sharma, on Friday, said 1924.56 lakh units of electricity was supplied in the state on August 21, an all-time high. This, he claimed, was 705.50 lakh units more than the power supplied on the corresponding day last year.

The peak load on Tuesday was 8828 megawatts as against 6166 MW on August 19, 2013, he claimed.
"On Thursday, Discoms (Uttar Haryana BIjli Vitran Nigam and Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam) supplied power for 23.42 hours to industries, 23.37 hours to urban consumers, about 14 hours to rural domestic consumers and for 9.20 hours to agriculture tube wells, more than the supply scheduled on that day,".

Sharma claimed that the complaints of disruption of supply due to natural calamities will be attended to on priority basis, adding that the instructions have been issued to immediately restore the supply in case of feeder breakdown, damage of distribution transformer and other technical reasons to avoid inconvenience to consumers.
