Staff Reporter

COIMBATORE: The Coimbatore District Small Industries Association has appealed to the Tamil Nadu Electricity Board to announce the power cut schedule in advance to help the industries plan their production accordingly.

In a release, the association president, C. Muthusami, said the city was suffering from unscheduled power cuts for the last five days leading to production losses in industries. On an average there was no power for four to five hours a day. Further, the power cuts were unannounced. This had affected the units.

The Tamil Nadu Electricity Consumers’ Association has expressed concern over the frequent power cuts experienced across the State in the last few days.

Consumers should be informed of load shedding. The association also urged its members to step up captive generation in order to bring down the load on the grid.
