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.
