Delhi’s peak power demand has once surged to a new record, hitting 6,998 MW at 3-22 pm on Monday. A BSES Delhi statement said this is the highest ever power demand so far.
The new high breaks the previous record of 6,934 MW registered on June 8. The peak power demand in BSES Rajdhani area of South and West Delhi clocked 3,031 MW and in BSES Yamuna area of Central and East Delhi, 1,555 MW.
An earlier statement had said that arrangements have been made by the BSES power distribution companies to source adequate electricity to meet the demand of around 40 lakh consumers. These arrangements include long-term PPAs and banking arrangements with other States, including Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Sikkim, and Tamil Nadu as also Bhutan.
In addition to this, BSES discoms will also get up to 665 MW through banking arrangements. Around 150 MW of renewal energy from Himachal Pradesh and around 20 MW from Rajasthan will further boost the supply arrangement.
In case of unforeseen contingencies because of low generation and outages of power plants, the discoms will purchase short-term power from the exchange, the statement added.
