The Meghalaya Energy Corporation Limited (MeECL) on Wednesday said there will be no load shedding on Thursday.
“But considering the exam season, the ensuing GHADC elections in Garo Hills and in order to lessen the inconvenience to the general public, MeECL has managed to arrange costly power from the energy market. Hence there will be no load shedding for tomorrow,” the MeECL said.
The Corporation also informed that its internal MePDGCL generation has fallen to the lowest, average of 35-40 MW for want of water.
“But because of extreme crisis we ramped up the average generation to 87.54 MW, at 7am on April 6 we even touched 188.59 MW which is dangerous and unsustainable.
Because of both the unit shutdown in OTPC Palatana from April 7 to 14, for tomorrow the deficit has widened to 3.35MU out of the daily average demand of 6.1 MU,” it said.
