India restores power after huge blackouts

Saturday, August 11, 2012


INDIA: India restored its power supplies on Wednesday after two days of massive outages that blacked out half the country, but fears remained that the grid could again collapse under the strain of over-demand.

India’s electricity network was back at full capacity after three regional grids failed on Tuesday in the country’s worst power crisis that left more than 600 million people without supplies.

“It is a very difficult and challenging situation, and solutions will have to be found,” new Power Minister Veerappa Moily said after confirming that the northern, eastern and north-eastern networks were back on line. “I’m not going to start with a blame game.

The centre and the states will have to work together on this,” he added, as wary consumers who are used to regular load-shedding braced for the possibility of more serious disruption.
