TN spinning mills seek withdrawal of power restrictions

The Tamil Nadu Spinning Mills Association (TASMA) has urged the Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Corporation Ltd. (TANGEDCO) to withdraw the existing restrictions on power supply to industrial consumers.

The appeal comes in the wake of an increase in wind power generation in the state, which fills the prevailing demand and supply gap.

The members of TASMA own wind power generation capacity of more than 3,000 MW, which accounts for around 50 percent of the total installed capacity in the state.

TASMA said the wind power supply into the grid touched 60 million units last week, which was the highest ever recorded in the state.

In its representation to TANGEDCO, TASMA said if the power restrictions are not lifted, the wind mills would need to be stopped during all power holidays due to lack of demand, which would be a waste of a clean and green energy.

The Association said currently there is two-day power holiday in a week to industrial units with High Tension power supply. While one holiday is fixed on every Sunday, the other holiday varies from region to region.

TASMA said the Corporation can increase its revenue by using the power generated by the wind mills on those two days.

Tamil Nadu has been facing electricity shortage of about 30 percent since 2008. However, generation of power using wind mills is a seasonal phenomenon in the state as winds at adequate speeds blow during April-May to October period.
