Power generation at Sharavati reduced

  The output stands at five million units per day as against the capacity of 18 mu, following directions from the Karnataka Power Transmission Corporation Limited.

The reduction in generation has eased pressure on the hydel station and there has been no considerable change in the the water level at the reservoir.

There are also other reasons for reducing the output. Following copious widespread rains, the demand has declined from 120 mu to 105 mu per day. The government has been purchasing nearly 75 mu of power from external sources at cheaper price, the authorities said.

Chief Executive  Engineer Hanumantappa said water storage was 88 percent of its storage capacity on this day, last year, it was 93 percent. There are a total of 10 power generating stations in the Sharavati hydel project.
