As part of the many initiatives post bifurcation, 27X7 “Power For All” was implemented after the Government of India chose Andhra Pradesh as one of the three states for the project. June saw a massive shift, when a power deficit of 22 million units (MU) per day were drastically brought down to zero within. The state has achieved a new milestone of ‘zero power cuts”.
The future action plans of the State Government are to include 9000 MW solar and wind power in the next coming four years of time.
As part of the energy secure drive, a 4000 MW super thermal power station has been established in association with NTPC near Visakhapatnam. Another 960 MW hydel power project has also been proposed as a part of the multi-purpose Polavaram Project. This apart, AP Genco is also coming up with a 1600 MW thermal plant near Krishnapatnam.
This is a major achievement for the State of Andhra Pradesh, emerging from a power deficit state to a power surplus state.
The Government is now actively working towards providing uninterrupted power supply to the farmers, investors and the residents.
