Telangana Power Crisis, Bapu Please Guide Our CM KCR and PM Modi


Dear Bapu,

Recall my appeal last year “Solution to the Dilemma of AP – Bapu, Please Guide Govt of India

Thank you very much and to-day once again I appeal to you to bless the wisdom and courage to Our Chief Minister KCR Garu and Prime Minister Narendra Modi Ji to address the Power Crisis the State has inherited partly and partly is aggravated by the antagonistic state of Andhra Pradesh State establishment not following the provisions in the law enacted to re-organize the state.

In Short the Power Crisis is :

State requires Power Supply of           160 MU  (150 ~165 MU) Range

State Genco Thermal Capacity               45 MU

State Quota from Central                        38 MU

Hydal Source (0 ~ 40 MU)                        20 MU

Secured Supply of  Only                        103 MU

Power Deficit   of 57 MU

Currently It Purchases  about 20 MU and Receives from AP about 15 MU

Leaving the State Running around Average of 22 MU Deficit and this Can worsen when Hydal becomes Zero to Over 40 MU in Coming Summer when AP too may cut down the sharing its Power in which case it can cross even 50 MU

Yes New Power Plants expected to be Completed but so does Demand Goes Up with Commissioning of Metro Rail and Other Initiatives by Government to Develop State of Telangana rapidly.

If this is not addressed with Sense of Urgency There would be Massive Trouble to the State in coming months and years beginning Summer in 2015.

What Options does Govt of Telangana has

1. It has already Released Tender for 2000 MW assured Supply, However question is lack of Grid Connectivity to Tap the Power from Private Power Plants that can Sell !

This can only be resolved by Government of India by Changing the Grid Allocations

My Take : In Best Possible Scenario Also at Best 1000 MW ie about 20 MU can be bridged if the CM develops a good equation with concerned minister and PM, which is not looking good now..

2. It has initiated 500 MW Solar Power Plant Bidding this however at most can add only about 2 MU that’s to not for the 2015 Summer season

3. Construct the Dichpalli to Nagpur Line on War Footing to increase the Grid Connectivity to Central India where a lot of Power can be Procured.  This too will need Over 2 Years for any public sector to complete it.

4. Promote Grid Connected Solar Feeder Conversion Scheme to all Villages in Telangana

Assume a Feeder has 100 Pumpsets of 5 HP

If all farmers Form a Co-operative committing following

  • All will spare 100 Sq Meter Land for Solar PV Station
  • All will Contribute Rs 1 Lakh
  • All will take 10 Year Loan of Rs 2 Lakh at 5% Interest from Grameen or Commercial Banks
  • State Govt Contributes Rs 2 Lakh per pump

for 100 Pump Feeder Rs 5 Crore Investment will provide 2280 Units of Uninterrupted Power all through the day and Unused Power State can sell it to Industry where it can earn better returns for its Subsidy investmet, approximate Half Power State Can get it FREE and sell it.

State Can Pay Rs 5 Unit to Farmers to Encourage them to Sell not waste so that they can earn enough to pay back the loan.

5. State has to Setup 1000 MW Solar Power Plants Near to Srisailam, Nagarjuna Sagar and 500 MW near to Jurala

These 2500 MW Solar Projects Can generate about 12 MU of Power in the Day

Using the Reversible Pumps at Nagarjunasagar , Srisailam Hydal Plants Daily

Telangana Can Store about 6 MU Power as Hydal Power during the Day Time of 11 AM to 3 PM then Generate Back the Hydal Power from 7 PM to 11 PM with 80% Efficiency get 5 MU meet the Peak Demand .

6. Govt has initiated multiple new Thermal Power Plants all of which can at best be complete by 2019 by then the Gods Grace the development will drive the rise in demand itself absorb..

State like Gujarat is already consuming 500 MU Power it added 10,000 MW Capacity between 2009 to 2012 

Telangana Vision Must be to Consume at least 300 MU Power by 2019 if not 400 MU

I am glad our CM KCR has taken many good measures to the good governance of Telangana Development and welfare of the people

Jai Telangana

Jai Bharat

    #KCR worked on other option.
    Buying power from Chhattisgarh.
    Cost is 9,000 cr crores .it needs Central Govt help.
    2 substations need to be installed.
    One in Chhattisgarh and one in Telangana.
    800 KM transmission line of which 700 KM will be in Chattisgarh.
    Telangana will have no right on 700 KM transmission Line even if it bears the cost.
    On own Telangana Govt cant spend so much.
    is the BJP Govt in Center ready to help Telangana.
    if it does ,Power problem is solved once for all.

      It was miscalculation
      It needs to work on Dichpally to Nagpur line
      However that too will not address immediate crisis
      Has to seek re-distribution of current Grid allocations as KKR planted this headache ..

        Please check the news on 8th September for the press note on ‘Soura Raita’ by karnataka Energy Minister Sri.DK Sivakumar.

        It says:
        Rs.5.00Lakhs for Grid-tie installation for a 5HP pump-set
        Rs.4.00lakhs are borne Central and state govt. subsidies
        Rs.1.00lakh is given as loan to farmers by banks
        For every unit of energy exported to grid, farmer is paid Rs.7.20 if subsidized or Rs.9.56 if unsubsidized.
        It will be paid to farmer half-yearly.
        On successful implementation of pilot of 3,000 pump-sets, it is likely to be implemented for 21.5lakhs of pump-sets across the state.
        By this, the government is likely to permanently get rid of the burden of Rs.7,000crores/year

        Our state of Telangana is also having 18million pump-sets and if this strategy is implemented, about 13,000MU/Year is saved (35MU/day) and 11,000MU/Year (30MU/day) is exported to grid which is more than the existing/anticipated deficit.

        KCR JI – PLEASE LISTEN TO US AND SAVE OUR STATE

    Boss even AP don’t have excess power capacity to supply to other states…. Just because bloody congress made law as per their wishes one don’t need to follow it like bhagawadgeeta … “I can’t keep my house dark to provide light to neighbour”… Even KCR would have done the same ,…. So lets stop blaming and start working… Options provided by you are very much feasible…. Installing solar plants on war footing is very much feasible and immediately shiuld be started. Instead of concentrating too much on bathukamma, statues on tank bund, surveys etc… His top 3 priorities should be POWER, POWER, POWER. I hope your solutions reached KCR and just don’t remain on this blog….

      Fine Vinod

      Remember the same logic when Telangana Releases the water Only after it meets its requirements..
      as you say
      “I can’t keep Our Farm Lands Dry to provide Water to neighbour”

      Dear,
      “Power Deficit of 57 MU
      Currently It Purchases about 20 MU and Receives from AP about 15 MU
      Leaving the State Running around Average of 22 MU Deficit and this Can worsen when Hydal becomes Zero to Over 40 MU in Coming Summer when AP too may cut down the sharing its Power in which case it can cross even 50 MU”

      I wonder how this statement can be drawn to such a controversy for anybody to say “I can’t keep my house dark to provide light to neighbor” !?!

      Who begged for it? The author is clear and conscious that as a natural impact during summer, AP may not be able to spare as AP’s local consumption might hit peaks. Author is much concerned about meeting the deficit being experienced by Telangana.

      “Instead of concentrating too much on bathukamma, statues on tank bund, surveys etc… His top 3 priorities should be POWER, POWER, POWER.” – While appreciating your kind concern to concentrate on overcoming our power crisis, your advise smells rut. Our engineers are on this responsible Job and are capable. We wish KCR to concentrate on “bathukamma, statues on tank bund, surveys etc…” which is very purpose of us to proudly elected him as our Chief Minister – which, for your kind information, DO NOT REQUIRE ELECTRICITY.
