The state consumed about 241 MU of power on August 29. The Genco was able to supply 56 MU from thermal power units. The Transmission Corporation bought 1,200 MW of power from the power exchange, which is equal to 24 MU.

The demand for power is rising due to round-the-clock supply of power to the agriculture sector and launch of the Kaleswaram Lift Irrigation project. With good rains in the first week of August, the farmers have stepped the farm works leading to increased demand for power in agriculture sector.
