State power minister Harbjahan Singh on Saturday said electricity-generating units would soon start getting coal supplies from Jharkhand’s Pachwara coal mines.

Singh, who was visiting Talwandi Sabo Power Limited (TSPL), a private facility in Mansa district, said chief minister Bhagwant Mann is personally intervening to ensure uninterrupted power supply in the state.

“We are working in a coordinated manner to get coal supply from Jharkhand mines. In comparison to the previous years, demand for power has increased by 40% and a few power-generation units were shut that hit power supply. Some of these units have been repaired while others would also start power generation soon. A unit of a thermal plant at Roopnagar resumed operations today,” said the minister.
