Karnataka’s serious energy crises are avoided by solar power and rains

The heavy rains have decreased electricity consumption, giving the administration some breathing room to deal with the coal shortfall at thermal power plants. Solar power has also proven to be useful, meeting more than half of the demand throughout the day. These two elements are assisting us, and we can manage the electricity situation without resorting to loading shedding, as per Karnataka Power Transmission Corporation Limited’s managing director (KPTCL). During the day, solar power is proven to be a substantial source of energy. Because of the rain, demand is low and manageable in the evening.

The state’s solar facilities have a total installed capacity of 7,349MW, including the Pavagada Solar Park (2,050MW) in the Tumakuru district. Solar power generates approximately 3,500MW per day on average in the state, while peak load demand has been about 6,500MW for the previous 10 days. The peak demand for electricity in October is typically 9,500MW, but it has decreased this year due to continuing rains, which experts from the India Meteorological Department (IMD) characterize as the prolongation of the southwest monsoon, which was scheduled to finish a few weeks ago.
