  • I will not blame the management. The core of grid technology is hundred years old. Even in the era of super computers, not much work has been done to offset the cascading effects of a failure on a node. It happened in the USA in 2003 and in India last year.

  • Technically, long outage!

    Practically, , none would have felt.



  • This is yet another manifestation of what is wrong with status-quo. Once Soosoonami is in power it will end load-shedding permanently within 60 days and there will never ever be any power outage.
