Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh on Thursday faced a serious
power crisis with the tripping of Anpara and Obra power plants
in Sonebhadra district, reducing electricity generation to
mere 300 MWs.

Power department sources here said generation in the
plants came to a halt around 10.30 am due to technical faults
in Obra-Panki and Obra-Anpara KV lines.
The state had to make do with mere 300 MWs generated in
Panki, Paricha and Harduaganj plants.

However, four units of the five rendered non-functional
at Obra were rectified by 3.30 pm and power generation
resumed. Engineers were working hard to restore functioning of
Anpara plant.
The state had not witnessed a power failure of this
magnitude in a decade, they claimed.
