Residents in Chennai are experiencing a resurgence of power cuts as the Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Corporation (TANGEDCO) faces difficulties in keeping up with the escalating electricity demand. The situation has left citizens grappling with prolonged outages and disrupted daily routines.

Despite efforts to maintain a stable power supply, TANGEDCO finds itself overwhelmed by the surging power consumption, exacerbated by soaring temperatures and increased energy requirements due to the resumption of economic activities.

The recurrence of power cuts has sparked public outrage, with residents expressing frustration over the utility provider’s inability to meet their energy needs reliably. Local industries, including small businesses and manufacturing units, have also voiced concerns over the adverse impact on their operations and productivity.

TANGEDCO officials have acknowledged the challenges they face and attribute the power shortage to a shortfall in electricity generation and transmission capacities. They cite the increasing gap between demand and supply as the primary reason for the recurring power cuts in Chennai.
