Power demand touches new record highs in Haryana
Chandigarh: The power transmission and distribution system in Haryana on Monday supplied a record 9,152 megawatt after a surge in electricity demand due to rise in mercury and almost no rains in the state.
The state had seen a peak load of 6,787 megawatt of electricity on the corresponding day last year.
A spokesman of the power utilities said here today that the curve of electricity demand has been touching new heights for last some days as there is no respite for people from scorching heat in the sate.

He said that duration of supply has been more than the schedule fixed by the discoms.
