Freshly introduced day-time curbs on power supply will extend for five more days, according to Kerala State Electricity Board. The board had initially said that the curbs would be valid for two days, which have since passed. Daily usage continues to hover in the region of the newly-scaled peak of 60 million units even after the curbs imposed between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. became effective, the board observed.

The campaign was launched on March 23 to help fight the ‘twin evils’ of power shortage and soaring consumption. The project has two components: one, based on weekly meter readings, consumers stand to win prizes worth Rs 2 crore by reducing consumption. Two, residents associations which reduce their consumption by at least 10 per cent stand to get selectively exempted from daily load shedding schedule. The campaign closes on May 31.
