Capital power demand peaks up

Wednesday, 19 June 2024 | Saumya Shukla | New Delhi

Extreme heatwave drove the national Capital’s peak power demand on Tuesday afternoon to 8,647 MW, the highest ever for the city.

The previous highest peak power demand of Delhi was 8,302 MW on May 29 this year. Delhi’s peak power demand reached 8,000 MW for the first time on May 22, 2024.

Notably, the peak power demand has been pushed over 8,000 MW eight times since May 22 and the national Capital’s peak demand is hovering over 7,000 megawtt for the past 30 days.

According to the State Load Dispatch Centre data, at 3.22 pm on Tuesday, Delhi’s peak power demand clocked 8,647 MW. It is the highest ever in the history of Delhi.

The heatwave has also led to acute shortage water supply in the last one month. People in several parts of the city could be seen standing in long queues to fetch water from the tankers.  The power outages have aggravated the situation here.
