There is no hope of getting relief from the power crisis in Punjab yet. It will take five days for the coal from the northeastern states to arrive for the thermal plants in the state. Powercom has also appealed to the people of Punjab to cooperate and use less electricity after the depleting coal storage in thermal plants.
Thermal plants have started shutting down due to a shortage of coal in Punjab. This information has been given to the Chief Minister of the state on behalf of the Powercom office. It states that the availability of coal in the plants is very less. Presently 5 units of three thermal plants are not producing due to a shortage of coal. Due to this power cuts have started. Even the farmers are facing power cuts.
Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi has also appealed to the Center to supply cuckoos to overcome the cuckoo crisis. Powercom has issued an appeal and told the people that the entire country is currently facing a power crisis. Therefore, if possible, use only as much electricity as is needed. Do not use AC and other electrical appliances unnecessarily.
