AND RELIEF FOR NAVI MUMBAIKARS – POWER FROM TATA POWER COMPANY TO EASE LOAD SHEDDING IN NAVI MUMBAI

tata-power-2Electricity consumers across the state, who suffer long hours of load-shedding while Mumbai enjoys almost uninterrupted supply, have a reason to cheer. Nearly 100mw of power from unit 8 of Tata Power Company (TPC), which was to be distributed in Mumbai, will now be diverted to the rest of the state, especially to Thane, Navi Mumbai and Pune. The unit in Trombay, to be commissioned in a month, will generate 250mw of electricity. 100mw will be supplied to the Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport (BEST) undertaking and 50mw to the distribution arm of the company. The remaining 100mw, as mentioned in TPC’s tariff petition submitted to the Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission, will be set aside for merchant trading. This means that the trading wing of Tata Power has been appointed as franchisee to meet the power requirements of consumers in Thane, Navi Mumbai and Pune. The areas require 350mw every day, and the current shortfall is 100mw. Bureau report NMTV
