With the onset of Summer, the power demand naturally increases. During the summer, day and night, electricity consumption is higher than on normal days. City folks resort to Acs and Coolers for a respite from the scorching sun during the day and the heat at night. But over the past two years, power consumption in Greater Hyderabad during the summer has come down significantly. 

Electricity consumption in May 2019 averaged 6.5-7 crore units per day. In May 2020, it was less than six crore units, but in May 2021, it dropped further to an average of 5.04 crore units. According to power department officials, during the summer of 2021, the lowest was 4.49 crore units, and the highest was 5.658 crore units. At the same time, the pandemic was the reason last year. Along with the lockdown, unseasonal rains and inclement weather also played a part in lower consumption this year.

Every year before the onset of summer, the Electricity department estimates the growing demand for power and make arrangements accordingly. The demand is expected to 7.8 crore units this summer. However, the second wave of the coronavirus intensified in March and April. Similarly, the Telangana government has imposed a lockdown in the state from May 12th. This has resulted in some reduction in power consumption. Due to Work from Home, the Power demand fell.

Also, this is the coolest summer in many years for Hyderabad. As a result, the revenue is down by around Rs 250 crore per month in summer in the Greater Hyderabad area. While the total electricity connections are around 52 lakh in Greater, the revenue from bills is around Rs 1,500 crore every month. Especially in the summer, there used to be additional revenue of 200-300 Crore Rupees. But that is not the case this year.
