The Ministry of Electricity announced on 1 May that power supply reductions would need to continue due to decreased availability of natural gas, lower water levels in dams, and various other factors.
A total of 29 hydropower plants, 27 natural gas power plants, two coal power plants, and six solar power plants can generate 7,184.46 megawatts of electricity.
If all power plants could operate at maximum capacity, they could fulfil the nation’s requirement of 5,443 megawatts.
The report also highlights that dams have insufficient water levels due to lower rainfall during the 2023 monsoon compared to 2022. Water stored in dams and natural gas must be used cautiously from last November to the upcoming June for electricity production to ensure stable nationwide electricity distribution and prevent power outages before the monsoon season. As a result, the country can only meet around 50 per cent of its electricity demands. — TWA/TMT
