News: Electric Power Cuts To Continue Till June 2016 In Odisha
Odisha's Energy Minister Pranab Prakash Das told reporters that "We are facing a shortfall of 500-550 MW because of a drastic fall in hydro power generation. Therefore, we have no choice but to go for power cuts till June next year,"

Stating that the hydro-power generation has come down to 750 MW due to fall in water level in different reservoirs, the minister said the state used to generate 1750 MW from hydro-sector in peak hours and 1000 MW in normal hours. Due to low level of water in reservoirs, power generation had come down to only 750 MW, he said.

The minister said the load-shedding could continue till two to two-and-half hour everyday across the state. However in rural area its continuing with 4-5 hours everyday and 2-3 hours in urban area.

The minister said the state also faced difficulties in getting electricity from thermal sector as some of the NTPC's units were under maintenance.
