Heat, overloading trip power supply

GURUGRAM: Large parts of Gurgaon reeled under prolonged power cuts over the weekend as the spiking heat resulted in overloading, which led to frequent tripping of the system.

Outages were reported from sectors 14, 21, 4, 6, 3, South City 1 and DLF Phase 4. In many areas, the cuts spanned for as long as four hours.

“The frequent cuts have gotten to our nerves now,” said Dinesh Aggarwal, RWA president, Sector 14. “The discom claims to provide us uninterrupted power supply but on ground nothing seems to happen. The residents make frequent calls to me hoping that I will forward their complaints to the officials concerned. But even officials take time to come to our areas and ascertain where the snag is.”

Residents also complained that overnight power cuts not only keep them awake, but also make them unable to pump water the next morning.
