Distribution

The current load factor of Tripura system is 47% and the same is adopted over the period of next year as the demand is mostly domestic, commercial, public lighting etc. which occurs only few hours a day. The peak demand may get reduced if the load factor improves.

TSECL has undertaken various schemes for strengthening and extending its T&D network.
