THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: As the drought-like situation is emerging in Kerala, the government may go for load shedding from March. The water level in reservoirs has come down; the water level in dams is only 30 percent. This situation will seriously affect power production. There would be a deficit of 10 crore unit power.

Attempts are also going on to solve the crisis by buying electricity from outside. In summer, the usage of electricity will increase and March is the month of exams. So imposing load shedding would invite trouble for the government and hence it is exploring all other options.   

6. 8cr unit is the average daily usage of electricity in the State and this is expected to rise in the coming months. What is generated in Hydel power stations is 7 to 10 crore units. The rest is being brought from outside.  

It is presumed that the usage will spike to 80 core unit during April-May months. What is obtained from power grid 60 crore unit and that is the maximum limit. The plan is to impose load shedding for rest of the requirement.
If the power generation in private power centres are revived, 70 crore unit will be obtained from Kayamkulam. But for this, double the cost will have to be given, which will a financial burden for the Electricity board.
