In response to dwindling electricity demand, three units of the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) in Rae Bareli have been temporarily closed. Units A, II, and V of the NTPC project ceased operations, resulting in a significant reduction of 630 MW of power generation.
The NTPC project, a key contributor to the power grid, produces a total of 1550 MW of electricity. This includes 210 MW each from units one through five and 500 MW from the sixth unit.
The generated electricity is distributed across multiple states, namely Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Rajasthan, Delhi, Chandigarh, Haryana, Uttarakhand, and Jammu and Kashmir.
Project officials, citing low electricity demand, confirmed the temporary closure. Komal Sharma, the Project Public Relations Officer, stated that the shutdown was carried out on the instructions of the Northern Region Load Despatch Centre.
