TNEB to stop load shedding by June 2012

India’s Tamil Nadu Electricity Board (TNEB) has announced a plan to lift load shedding by June 2012, which it has submitted to the Tamil Nadu Electricity Regulatory Commission (TNERC).

Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Company (TANGEDCO) has also submitted proposals for a strategy for overcome a power shortage of 2500-4000 MW through making the best use of internal resources and power purchasing.

A lack of transmission corridors for importing power currently forces TANGEDCO to restrict supply, said the Times of India.

TANGEDCO is scheduled to commission 930 MW of new capacity by the end of 2011 but most of these projects are behind schedule. TANGEDCO also aims to operate 2331 MW of new capacity by June 2012, including 660 MW from renewable sources.
