No more powercuts in Punjab next summer, says PSPCL chief

The chairman of the Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL), K D Chaudhary, on Saturday said that there will be no power cuts in the upcoming summer season in Punjab. At a blood donation camp organised by PSPCL in coordination with NGO Salaam Zindagi at the Focal point division, Chaudhary added: "Last year due to shortage of rainfall, power problems were faced by the common people but this year Punjab power body has already started the preparations for the upcoming summer season."

An additional 3,980 MW of power will be available to Punjab with the Talwandi Sabo thermal plant starting operations this March, Chaudhary said.

Further, Himachal Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh will return the power, which Punjab had supplied to them this winter, he said. "There is no shortage of metres now in the board. 1 lakh metres have been provided to the department and 8 lakh more will arrive in March. The department has additional coal reserves for 12 days, which will be increased to 22 days in the future," K D Chaudhary added.
