SUDDEN FALL in temperature has come as blessing in disguise for KESCo officials. The improved power supply in the city is being attributed to it.
Power supply on Diwali has always been a major concern for KESCo officials. Demand for supply increases manifold on the festive season and streamlining the power supply on Diwali becomes a Herculean task.
But the improved weather condition coupled with efforts put in by the KESCo officials has ensured regular power supply to Kanpurties.
Managing director of KESCo Arun has issued necessary instructions to KESCo officials for ensuring regular power supply to the city. The KESCo MD has also issued special instructions for repair of faults and attending of complaints to all general managers and assistant general managers.
Chief general manager of KESCo PC Chaudhary informed that gangs have been deployed in all divisions to meet emergency.
The company has also arranged extra transformers for replacement of burnt ones if necessary, Chaudhary added.
Mobile transformers have also been arranged by the company to meet any eventuality, Chaudhary informed.
A senior KESCo official pointed out that the problem of KESCo was mitigated to a large extent by the improved weather conditions.
“Rain which lashed the city on last Thursday has given a much respite to KESCo officials, with temperature coming down and demand for power supply has also reduced,” the official added.
The extent of demand for power supply in the city could be gauged by the fact that all prominent markets in the city are decked up with lights. These markets include Naveen Market, PPN Market, Birhana Road, P Road, commercial hub of the city Gumti and several other markets in northern parts on the city.
While in southern areas of the city also prominent markets at Govind Nagar, Kidwai Nagar, Naubasta, Baradevi, Juhi and other areas are the big draw for consumers. These markets decorated with lights consume more power in comparison to normal days.
