Though Union power minister M Veerappa Moily’s promise of allocating 350 mw from the central stations and of additional supply of coal has brought some hope to power-starved state, hardships faced by domestic, agricultural and industrial consumers continues.

 And there seems to be no immediate relief coming their way as the government is unable to purchase power from the open market.

 The medium term power purchase agreement is also unlikely to materialise until June 2013.

 According to AP Transco officials, saving power is the only alternative at this juncture.

 In an open letter, the officials requested the people to save power.

 They said that around 10,000 to 15,000 million units of power could be saved every year if it was used judiciously by people.
