Goa's power losses reduced to 11%

 

Constant check on electricity pilferage and upgradation of infrastructure in the state has helped Goa to drastically reduce its power losses, government said today.

The measures have helped the Goa government to drastically reduce its power losses since last year at 11 percent compared to the national average of 35 percent, State Power Minister Milind Naik claimed.

The upgradation of infrastructure and constant check on the electricity pilferage has helped the department to curb power losses making Goa one of the best managed state in terms of electricity, Naik said.

Our electricity tariffs are already low compared to all other states in the country, he said, adding that check on the pilferage is helping the department to manage its resources better.

Goa is charging Re 1.20 per unit for the initial 60 units followed by Re 1.60 per unit till 250 units.

Naik said that state government has taken upgradation work of more than Rs 350 crore for the current financial year fixing majority of the issues faced by the department.

He said that the coastal belt, which is abuzz with tourists, was facing a major load shedding during peak hours.

But now it has been now spared from the trouble after laying of two new 33 KV underground feeders.

Areas like Candolim, Calangute, Siquerim and Arpora were also getting affected with the power disruption.

Also, various other works are at different stages, and their completion would improve the power scenario in the state, he said.
