KPDCL Clarifies Power Cut Situation: Only 2 to 2.5 Hours Added to Load Curtailment Program Amidst Declining Power Generation

Srinagar, Jan 20: Kashmir Power Distribution Corporation Limited (KPDCL) responded to recent media reports that hinted at substantial power cuts, providing a clarification on the current state of affairs. Contrary to the speculations, the power utility assured the public that there is only an additional 2 to 2.5 hours of cut, a measure incorporated into the existing Load Curtailment Program (LCP).
The announcement comes amid concerns raised by consumers about prolonged power outages, fueled by circulating reports of massive cuts. However,KPDCL sought to allay fears by explaining that the slight extension to the LCP aims to address the challenges posed by a decline in power generation.
Despite facing a significant drop in power generation, officials at KPDCL assert that they have diligently adhered to the prescribed LCP to meet the electricity demand. The Load Curtailment Program is a strategic approach to managing power distribution during times of shortage, ensuring a fair and equitable distribution of available resources.
“We understand the inconvenience caused by the additional hours of power cut, but it is a necessary measure to balance the supply and demand during this period of reduced power generation,” stated spokesperson.
The corporation expressed optimism about the situation, assuring the public that efforts are underway to address the challenges and restore normalcy in power distribution. The corporation added, “Our teams are working tirelessly to explore alternative solutions and improve power generation capacity. We are committed to minimizing disruptions and ensuring a reliable power supply for our consumers.”
As the region grapples with the implications of decreased power generation, residents are urged to cooperate with the temporary adjustments in the Load Curtailment Program. KPDCL remains vigilant in its commitment to providing consistent and uninterrupted electricity, with a promise to keep the public informed about any further developments in the coming days.
