Power blackout in Delhi: Capital may face 24-hour electricity outage as only 1 day of coal stock left in city

Delhi may experience a catastrophic power outage due to the shortage of coal in the power plants that supply electricity to the national capital. The shortage of coal along with the blistering heat has resulted in blackouts in several parts of the country as governments struggle to keep up with the surge in electricity demand.

The government released a statement that stated that disruption in power supply from Dadri and Unchahar thermal power plants may hit the 24-hour power supply to Delhi Metro, hospitals, and other important institutions in the national capital.

Satyendar Jain, the Delhi Power Minister, convened an emergency meeting to review the matter and appealed to the Centre, requesting that sufficient coal be made available to power plants supplying electricity to the national capital.

Who is expected to get hit by this power blackout?

The government said Dadri-II and Unchahar power stations play a major role in avoiding outages in Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, hospitals, and other institutions. Dadri-II and Jhajjar (Aravali) which were primarily established to meet the power requirement in the capital, are now facing difficulties in providing electricity due to the shortage of coal.

According to Jain, these power plants currently meet 25-30% of Delhi’s electricity consumption, and they are experiencing a coal scarcity. Satyendar Jain stated that the government was meticulously monitoring the situation and was doing all necessary stuff to ensure that citizens in some parts of the capital would not experience power interruptions.

How much coal is left in stock?

According to the Delhi government, the Dadri-II power plant has only one day’s coal stock left, while the Unchahar power plant has two days’ stock, Kahalgaon has three and a half days’ stock, Farakka has five days’ stock, and Jhajjar (Aravalli) has seven to eight days’ stock.

Delhi receives 1,751 megawatts (MW) of electricity per day from the Dadri-II, Unchahar, Kahalgaon, Farakka, and Jhajjar power plants. The Dadri-II power station provides the capital with the maximum supply of 728 MW, while the Unchahar station provides 100 MW.

What steps the government is taking to avoid power outages?

In addition to taking steps to improve coal supplies to power plants, the Union government has encouraged states to increase imports over the next three years in order to build up inventories.

All India Power Engineers Federation said thermal plants across the country are grappling with coal shortage, indicating a looming power crisis in the country.
