Entornointeligente.com / PUNE : The power generation from the Koyna dam was stopped on Thursday because of its depleting water-level, but there would be no load shedding or power shortage in Maharashtra. The thermal power stations of the state generation company are generating enough electricity to tide over the shortage and meet the high summer demand. Speaking to TOI from Mumbai , a senior officer of the Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Limited said though the power generation had stopped at Koyna, the thermal power stations of the Maharashtra State Power Generation Company Limited were generating 10,000MW at present. It is the company’s best performance in the past 60 years. On Thursday, the state recorded a demand of 19,247MW power. It was met by the state distribution company. The highest demand for power was recorded and met on May 23, when the distribution company managed to supply 20,134MW without enforcing any load shedding. “So far, the company’s thermal plant used to manage about 7,500MW power generation. From Friday, another 300MW of thermal power will be available because the generation sets shut down for maintenance will come online,” he said. The official said the distribution company was well prepared to meet the increased demand in the summer months. “We have signed power purchase agreements with private power producers so that there is no shortage and there is no need to enforce load shedding anywhere in the state,” he said. The distribution company had enough power resources and the state currently had power in excess, he added.
