In October, Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy confirmed that electricity demand in the state was 8600 MW from 6 am to 9 am in the morning and between 8100 to 10200 MW between 9 am and 5 pm. The demand dropped to 7600 MW from 10 pm to 6 am. He also stressed that the state had enough electricity supply to cope with the demand in these hours.
However, he had highlighted 5 pm to 10 pm in the evening as problematic hours for the state government to ensure uninterrupted supply since solar power cannot be generated in these hours.
Kumaraswamy stated that there will be no load-shedding in spite of the shortage of coal in the state’s thermal power plants and reiterated that the government will avoid load shedding and look for increasing power generation through hydroelectric power plants.
