State Grid not fazed by power supply demand

THE State Grid Shanghai Company is safeguarding the city’s energy supply with high-tech help as more and more enterprises resume work.

According to the company, as of Monday morning, its maximum load was near 17 million kilowatts, a 14.8 percent rise over the same period a week ago.

Currently, overall power supply is stable for enterprises, households, medical institutions and transportation hubs in Shanghai, the grid operator said.

Substations and transmission channels in downtown and suburban areas were also inspected to eliminate hidden dangers amid cold and windy weather.

Over 4,000 staff have been put on 24-hour standby across 173 repair stations in the city to deal with emergencies.

The company has collected and studied the data of firms above 10kv level to analyze business power usage since the extended holidays ended.

On February 15, among more than 32,000 above-10kv firms, over 60 percent have got back to work based on statistics of their daily electricity consumption.

Public utilities and medical firms lead among the enterprises that have resumed work, with a resumption rate of over 65 percent.
