In a bid to meet the increase in electricity demand of Jammu & Kashmir during the winters, the centre has decided to allocate an additional 792 Megawatts to the state.
The allocation of power to J&K from central generating stations (CGS) is 2,397 MW. The supply would be given by power stations of NTPC, NHPC, SJVNL, Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL) and NLC.
The power requirement in the state is met from the generation from allocated share from central generating stations, their own power plants and power purchased from market. At present, around 70 percent of the energy requirement is being met from CGS in the State.
The peak demand of the state during the current year between April and October was 2,768 MW and 2214 MW was supplied, leaving shortfall of around 554 MW.
