The peak power demand in the winter of 2021 was 5,021 MW.

The peak power demand reached 5,104 MW at 10.29 PM on Friday, State Load Dispatch Centre (SLDC) data showed.

BSES discoms, BSES Rajdhani Power Limited and BSES Rajdhani Power Limited, successfully met this season’s highest peak winter power demand of 2,140 MW and 1,114 MW in their respective areas on January 14, a BSES spokesperson said.
