“The state has now overcome from the crises and it is now having surplus power,” State Power Distribution Company (CSPDC) Managing Director Subodh Kumar Singh said. The company is now supplying uninterrupted power 24 hours to the industries and farmers in the state, he added. The company officials said that the power demand in the state at present was about 2500-Mw. The state was now producing a little more than 2600-Mw. The state is also providing power to Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh, the officials added. The development had come as a big respite for the power company officials as they now felt that the festival of lights would pass off without any crises. The officials said the state was now in a position to meet the additional demand that would come up during Diwali.
