Trash burning concerns power utility

Two days after large parts of eastern Pune suffered a massive power cut, the Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (MSEDCL) has urged citizens to avoid burning garbage near electricity distribution installations.The nearly 19-hour power cut was caused due to garbage burning around an open trench on Ahmednagar Road that damaged distribution cables.Officials clarified that preventing garbage burning at open public spots will help save electric cables, including those located underground, from da mage. However, citizens are routinely seen dumping garbage near feeder pillars, transformers, DP boxes as well as inside compounds that house transformers and other such installations, the statement said.
