Andhra Pradesh to emerge as number on in quality power supply: Minister

The energy department has set a target to make Andhra Pradesh the number one state in the country in providing 24×7 quality power to its consumers by Ugadi 2022.

Energy minister Balineni Srinivas Reddy has asked power utilities to focus on strengthening safe, reliable and cheap electricity supply to consumers in future as well as in becoming the most consumer-centric utilities in the country.

The government has agreed to bear a burden of Rs 9,091.36 crore for 2021-22 as subsidy for providing free power to agriculture consumers and some other weaker sections and subsidy for domestic consumers as well.

“The government wants to see fulfillment in the eyes of every farmers by ensuring that the free power scheme is implemented more effectively. Our motive is to provide quality power to the consumers without adding any burden. We should be the best by next Ugadi,” minister added.

Secretary for energy Srikant Nagulapalli said that the power utilities were taking all necessary steps to supply uninterrupted power during summer as the demand for electricity is steadily increasing.

He said that the power utilities would be more cautious during the summer to avoid any inconvenience to people due to any interruption in power supply.
