Urgent measures must be taken to address the power crisis affecting this industrial city. An uninterrupted, quality power supply must be ensured to all consumers.
The consumers of electricity in Coimbatore have received a step motherly treatment in the supply of electricity. They had to bear more than their fair share of the burden in the present power storage. Further, the cost of power has pushed up their cost of production, making them uncompetitive in the market. The poor quality of power has damaged their equipments and reduced their production quantity and quality.
The Government of Tamil Nadu Electricity Board should create adequate capacity to meet the entire needs of the consumers as soon as possible. In the meanwhile, the Government and TNEB should facilitate “Open Access” to enable consumers to buy power from any source.
