Gurgaon consumes 33.9% of DHBVN power supply: Study
The city consumes 33.9% of the load of the Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitaran Nigam ( DHBVN) and contributes 40.4% to its revenues. Also, the collection efficiency of Gurgaon stands at cent percent, which means consumers are paying their bills without fail. But Gurgaonites are still facing power-cuts, ranging from five to six hours.
This data is part of a detailed study on power distribution situation conducted by Amara Raja and Ranjith, second year students of the city-based Great Lakes Institute of Energy Management and Research.
A citizen forum – Gurgaon First – had commissioned the study so that this could be discussed with concerned government agencies at a workshop on ‘Revamping Gurgaon’s Electricity Scenario’.
