Mumbai to Get 33 Percent More Electricity via Adani


Mumbai to Get 33 Percent More Electricity via Adani
SHARES

Adani Electricity Mumbai Ltd (AEML) has been granted a transmission license for a period of 25 years by the Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission (MERC). 

This will enable Adani Electricity to provide up to 1,000 megawatts (MW) or up to 33 per cent more electricity to the city of Mumbai, thus catering to the demand more effectively. 

On average, Mumbai consumes around 2,500 to 3,000 MW of electricity during peak load, going all the way up to 3,500 MW during the summer months.

As per energy expert Ashok Pendse, consumers may get to see a price increase of around 6 to 7 paisa per unit, though this will be beneficial for the city’s energy demands.

It’s worth noting that the granting of the license to Adani Electricity will also see the establishment of a high-voltage direct current (HVDC) link of 80 Km between the 400kV Mahatransco substation at Kudus and Adani’s 220 kV substation at Aarey. People familiar with the matter said that this link will be the first to have an underground HVDC cabled system.
