Over 5,000 damaged transformers need replacing
India, Jharkhand: Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das claims he would ensure power supply to every village in the coming years, but many parts of the state of Jharkhand remain in darkness due to transmission loss and damaged transformers.
According to state the electricity department, more than 5,000 transformers in the state are damaged, reports Daiji World.
In a move to improve the power supply, the Jharkhand government has launched a programme to replace damaged and burnt out transformers, but at the same time, the electricity department does not have the stock to replace all damaged transformers.
Another issues faced by the authorities is that the capacity of most of the transformers is too low to bear the excess power load, and the percentage of the transmission loss of power, which is as high as 32.49 per cent in Jharkhand.
