SIMA requests govt to consider utilisation of banked wind energy

Dec '08
At the Industries Coordination meeting conducted by the Hon'ble Electricity Minister, Government of Tamil Nadu at the Secretariat Chennai on 29th December 2008, the Hon'ble Minister announced a marginal relief in the power cut to the HT industries. He enquired the industries whether they would prefer two power holidays in a week or a 10% reduction in power cut announced earlier.

Dr.K.V.Srinivasan, Chairman, The Southern India Mills' Association (SIMA) informs that,
-The textile industry would prefer to have 30% power cut since the textile industry is a continuous process industry.
-He has also thanked the Hon'ble Electricity Minister for favourably considering the textile industry's plea of supplying uninterrupted power during night hours (10 p.m. to 6 a.m.).
-Dr.Srinivasan has also appealed to the Hon'ble Electricity Minister to implement the TNERC recommendation on the usage of banked wind energy by the wind turbine operators in four equal instalments during January to April 2009. SIMA Chief has requested the Government to consider the utilisation of banked wind energy favourably due to the huge investment made by the textile industry in wind mills (more than 75% of the wind mill capacity in the State).
-Apart from the peak hour shutdown (6.00 PM to 10.00 PM) for four hours, the industry continues to face a shutdown for an additional two hours during the day. This additional power shutdown should be stopped in view of the relaxation of the power cut.

SIMA Chairman has thanked the Hon'ble Electricity Minister and the Government of Tamil Nadu for considering the representations made by the Association favourably and announcing certain reliefs in the power cut. He further added that the diesel oil captive generation model alone can solve the problem fully.

Therefore, he has requested the Government to once again make necessary provisions in the Budget to implement the diesel generation model as recommended by the TNERC to tide over the power crisis problem in Tamil Nadu
