Gas shortage cripples Delhi power plants
Discoms have not yet sourced power from the Delhi government's 1500 MW gas-based plant in Bawana this season. The peak demand this year is expected to be about 6200 MW. Tata Power's 108MW plant in Rithala has become almost redundant because of no gas availability. Out of the six power stations that supply electricity only to Delhi, four are dependent on gas.
