Maharashtra stands as the Indias single largest consumer of electricity
26 November 2017 Current Affairs: Maharashtra stands as the single largest consumer of electricity in India, followed by Uttar Pradesh and Telangana. With a demand for 75,169 million units (MU) during April to September, revealed data carried out by Central Electricity Authority. 

With the increasing demand, there was an increase of 8.6% over the demand for 69,216 MU in the year ago.

Among the larger states, Uttar Pradesh showed a growth of 15.37% year-on-year to 65,284 MU.

Rajasthan and Telangana too showed good growth of 54.8% and 15.34%, respectively.

Tripura with a consumption of around 1,000 MU saw its demand grow at a whopping 94.39%.

This growth would have been higher but for the drag from some other states. Tamil Nadu saw growth slip by 0.42% from a year ago. Madhya Pradesh’s demand was almost unchanged, while Gujarat’s demand rose by only 0.57%.

The Rating agency Investment Information and Credit Rating Agency ICRA Limited warned in a recent report that it is unclear whether such high growth overall would be sustainable.
