Telangana’s per capita power consumption is 70 per cent more than that of India. D. Prabhakar Rao, the CMD of TSGENCO and TSTRANSCO, said that per capita electricity consumption is an indicator that reflects the comprehensive progress of a state.

“We are proud that Telangana’s per capita power consumption increased from 1,200 units in 2014-15 to 2,126 units in 2021-22, which is 70 per cent more than the national average of 1,255 units,” he said.

Disclosing details, after unfurling the national flag on the 74th Republic Day, D. Prabhakar Rao said the Government of Telangana has introduced several welfare programmes.

The power sector plays a key role in the successful implementation of all schemes. The present contracted capacity of 18,453 MW is more than double than what existed on the date of the formation of Telangana State,that is 7,778 MW. Projects with a capacity of 8,085 MW are in various stages of development to meet the growing needs of lift irrigation, industrial consumers and other categories.

In an effort to become self-sufficient on the power front, all four units of the Bhadradri Thermal Power Station (4 X 270 MW) were commissioned and works at the 5 X 800 MW Yadadri Thermal Power Station have been expedited and all five units will be commissioned by the end of next year. The transmission and distribution network is being strengthened with an investment of Rs 38,070 crore.

Telangana has become the first state to provide 24-hour free power supply to the agriculture sector with a huge base of around 28 lakh agricultural connections from 01.01.2018 onwards.

As per the directions of the Chief Minister to maintain uninterrupted power supply to the twin cities the 400 KV Ring System has been established around the GHMC area by laying 142 circuit kilometres (CKM) of 400 KV lines interlinking six 400 KV substations and constructing eight 220 KV substations around the city.

The CMD said that the Chief Minister has hailed the efforts of power utilities on many occasions.

“I appeal to all engineers and employees to focus on improving the overall performance of power utilities through modern techniques to maintain the image created over the last few years and for improvement of the TS power sector,” he said.

He said that with close monitoring and precise planning on a day-to-day basis and with the concerted efforts of all employees, TS power utilities have been able to supply quality, reliable power to all categories of consumers without any power cuts in the last eight years.
