Andhra Pradesh to add about 16,000 mw capacity in five years
During the last 8 years, Andhra Pradesh’s power deficit has increased from 2% to a staggering 15%.
In other words, with the existing installed capacity, the state hasn’t even been in a position to meet 15% of its peak demand.
With scant rainfall, there is no scope to tap hydro power any further.
Similarly, an inadequate supply of coal has paralyzed any attempt at increasing thermal power.
Thus, solar energy is the only true 'ray of hope' that can meet the power demands of this growing state.
Andhra Pradesh government is planning to add 15,869 mega watt power generation capacity in the next five years.
The state energy department said that this capacity in addition would include thermal power (3,240 mw), central generating stations (1,949 mw), solar (3,150 mw), wind (7,030 mw) and other sources.
Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, reviewing the power situation in the state, said that the government was confident of sustaining round the clock power supply and seven-hour supply for agriculture, the department said in a release. Naidu emphasized the need to work out ways to expedite the construction of power projects to meet the increasing demand which is expected to be around 15 per cent, it added.
