The numbers on UP electricity consumption are even better!
Here is the link from ET: http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/politics-and-nation/in-just-month-of-yogi-adityanaths-reign-perennially-power-starved-up-becomes-zero-shortage-state/articleshow/58376089.cms
Of course #mediapimps do not know how to calculate., so using their numbers - presenting my calculations
According to the National Load Despatch Centre data for power transactions made by the state utility in the March-April period, daily energy consumption increasing from 265 MU (million units) per day to 320 MU in the last one month.
So daily increase in consumption is from 265 MU to 320 MU : 20%., for the month of March-April. Remember., YA became CM of UP on 19th march. This 20% "rise in power consumption" is to be discounted. The true base of power consumption is still unknown., since there is a large unmet demand and IMHO a better indicator here is how much is supply growth!
Here (supply growth) it gets even better:
This is borne out by the fact that the maximum demand met by the state utility during this period increased from 11,900 MW (mega watt) in early March to nearly 16,000 MW at present, showing no shortage during this period.
Of course demand was always there and it was unmet., hence the supply to meet maximum demand increased from 11.9 GW to 16 GW - that is a 34% increase in availability which was consumed.
"Earlier the generator could be running for up to 7-8 hours. Nowadays, the runtime has come down to an average of two hours," Raman Thakur, estate supervisor at one of the prime housing so cieties in Ghaziabad's Kaushambi area told TOI.
UP is now running into last mile problem! The rickety local distribution grid is what is causing issues.
