Only 50 percent of the country's electricity needs can be distributed

Yesterday's May 1 statement from the Military Council Ministry of Electricity stated that only 50 percent of the nation's electricity needs have been met.
 
The total installed capacity of the power plants is nearly 7,200 megawatts, but hydroelectric power plants and natural gas plants are unable to operate at full capacity due to reduced power generation, he said.
 
Now, an average of 2,800 MW is produced per day, and the country's power demand is about 5,500 MW.
 
46 percent to Yangon; He said that 16 percent was distributed to Mandalay and 38 percent to the provinces.
 
A resident of Yangon, who did not want to be named for security reasons, told RFA that the long-term power outages have affected social and economic life.
 
"It is not convenient to work because the light is not working at the right time. Even if the power goes out, it will be out for a long time. For those who work with electricity, this will affect their business."
 
In the meantime, over 400,000 non-compliant meters were cut off and over 60,000 meters were removed, according to a statement from the Ministry of Electricity and Energy. I don't see anything specifically said about not following the rules. After the military coup, there was a no-fee-to-pay movement under the military council, and there were cases where the meter boxes were removed from participating houses.
 
In addition, the 230 kV and 132 kV power lines that transmit power throughout the country have been destroyed, and 89 towers and five substations have been blown up, and there are also power outages, he said.
 
There are 29 hydropower plants supplying electricity throughout the country. 27 natural gas plants; two coal-fired factories; Electricity is distributed throughout the country from six solar power plants.
 
Since the military coup in Myanmar in 2021, people have been suffering from power outages.
