The Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Corporation (Tangedco) has notified a schedule for two-hour load shedding a day for different circles in Tiruchi.
Although there was some relief from load shedding over the past week due to a drop in demand consequent to the rain and cool weather, two-hour power cut was enforced in the city on Saturday. Last month, power cuts were experienced for up to six hours.Officials notify
Officials of the Tangedco said they have notified the schedule following complaints that power cuts are being enforced without any prior intimation or schedule. “However, this is only a tentative schedule. Depending on the availability of power and the grid condition, there may be variations. There may not be any load shedding on some days if the demand comes down due to rain or other factors,” said a senior officer.
