Power outages spark storm on KTR twitter, minister tells discom to act

Complaints about power cuts poured in from every nook and corner of the city on Sunday. Though the state government has said there have been no power cuts in the city and the state, residents brought their woes to the notice of municipal administration minister K T Rama Rao.

The minister appeared surprised when one Vikram Singh complained that power cuts had become the order of the day and wondered if there would be 24 hours electricity ever in the city.

"Where is this happening? No scheduled outages in Telangana," the minister responded on Twitter while asking the Telangana State Southern Power Distribution Company Limited (TSSPDCL) to look into the complaint.

Many other complaints soon poured in about power outages, unscheduled power cuts, regular power cuts and power cuts for long hours. The company responded to one Vishwajeet Vangala about power cuts at Alkapuri township and Manikonda areas. The company said, "Dear consumer, currently supply is normal in your area. If power is not restored, please tweet again." Reacting to the tweet, KTR told TSSPDCL: "Thanks for the prompt response. Please take care of complaints/issues coming from other areas too."

When a consumer pointed out that there was a power cut at Boduppal, the corporation said it was due to line work and the power supply would be restored in an hour.
A consumer Pinky, while drawing the attention of the minister to daily power cuts in Madhapur, suggested that a website be set up so that consumers can report power cuts to authorities. Pinky got no response. Another consumer from Musheerabad said there were 10-15 minutes outages sometimes. One Krishna Chandaka said every day there were unscheduled power cuts for one or two hours at Mayurinagar, Miyapur. Sidharrth M Hemmadi said there were power cuts on Road no. 14, Banjara Hills, usually during early mornings. Resident Sandeep Samal complained about cuts in Borabanda. Another area facing a problem was Panchavati Colony, Manikonda.

The corporation did not reply to all complaints. To some, it said that scheduled power cuts had been announced in the newspaper.
A consumer Jagadeesh said there were power cuts at Whitefields area of Kondapur. Speaking about his experience, Phani Murali said: "When I tweeted about Chandanagar power cuts everybody bashed me. So its happening all over Hyderabad."

EESL to retrofit 4.5 lakh streetlights in Hyderabad; ties up with GHMC

Considered to be the world’s largest project of its kind

The Pearl City of Hyderabad will soon be home to the world’s largest LED streetlighting project with 4.5 lakh lights retrofitted.

Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL) has signed up with Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation to retrofit 4.5 lakh street lights under the Streetlighting National Project.

With this project, GHMC will surpass South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC), where EESL has retrofitted approximately 2.7 lakh streetlights.

The ₹270-crore project will be implemented by EESL with no upfront cost to GHMC. The municipal Corporation will pay back EESL for the project cost through deemed savings mode, over a period of seven years.

Through the replacement, GHMC is likely to save approximately 20 crore kWh electricity annually, resulting in reduction of over 1.60 lakh tonnes of CO2 annually.

Saurabh Kumar, Managing Director of EESL, said in a statement, “It is a moment of immense pride for EESL, to collaborate with GHMC to retrofit the city’s 4.5 lakh conventional streetlights with LED-based lights, the opportunity to helm the world’s largest streetlighting project.”

GHMC has 3.5 lakh streetlight poles, which will be expanded to over 4.5 lakh by installation of 33 poles per kilometre. GHMC incurs an annual expenditure of ₹210 crore on maintenance and management of the existing conventional street light infrastructure.

Through the retrofitting drive, EESL has assured GHMC of approximately 50 per cent savings in electricity. This shall result in a monetary savings of over ₹1,200 crore to GHMC over seven years.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched 100 cities National Programme on January 5, 2015 to convert 1.34 crore conventional street and domestic lights with energy efficient LED lights, under the Streetlighting National Programme. Nationally, over 26 lakh conventional streetlights have been replaced with LED streetlights in 22 states.
