Unscheduled power cuts imposed across the State including in State capital for the last five days have been lifted on Friday as the power generation units resumed operation after the striking electricity employees in Seemandhra region joined their duties.

Over 30,000 electricity employees from coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema were on indefinite strike protesting the union government’s decision to bifurcate the state and demanding to withdraw its decision. In view of the cyclonic threat in coastal Andhra, the employees called off stir temporarily on the request of Chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy on Thursday.

APGENCO Managing Director K Vijayanand said power generation operations in full capacity in Narla Tatarao Thermal Power Station (NTTPS- 1750 MW ) in Vijayawada and Rayalaseema Thermal Power Project (RTPP- 1050 MW) resumed this morning. The Srisialam left bank hydro power stations also resumed power generation with a capacity of 770 MW. The increased gap between power demand and supply will be filled in the next 24 hours.

At present, 9,500 MW power was being generated out of 11,000 MW demand in the State. The power demand will be met once the hydel units in Sileru and Donkarai start power generation in full capacity.
