Mahagenco’s poor show costing every power consumer
You may be reeling under the burden of astronomical electricity bills but the prime supplier of power in the state – Mahagenco – seems to be least bothered. The state-run generation company’s aggregate revenue requirement (ARR) petition for 2012-13 filed with MERC has facts and figures that would shock power experts as well as the layman.
This abysmal performance of Mahagenco has caused significant increase in power tariff. MSEDCL buys most of its power from Mahagenco. If the cost of Mahagenco power is high, MSEDCL’s expenses increase and it demands a higher tariff hike.
