KOHIMA: The power shortage situation in the Northeast state of Nagaland has reached an “alarming stage”.
This was informed by the Nagaland power department.
The Nagaland power department attributed the power shortage in the state to the “lean season”.
It stated that hydro power stations in Nagaland have not been able to generate electricity at full capacity.
The department said that power shortage in Nagaland has been further exacerbated by thermal power stations shutting down for routine maintenance.
“The shutdown of a major thermal power station for maintenance has worsened the power availability situation,” engineer-in-chief of the Nagaland power department Moa AierAier said.
The Nagaland power department requested the general public to judiciously use electricity and make regular payment of monthly electricity bills.
