Madhya Pradesh power transmission and distribution system encountered a peak demand of 8,505 megawatt (MW) and served 41,392 gigawatt/hour (GWh) resulting in an unmet peak demand of 8,393 MW (17%) in 2012. Forecast sales to all customers in 2013-2014 is about 43,000 GWh, (about 600 kWh per person) and sales are expected to increase by an average of 7% per year in the 12th five-year plan period (2012-2017). There are 8.21 million electricity customers in the state, of which 6.1 million were household customers with a legal power connection, representing about 60% of all households. The increasing new connections to households, increased consumption from existing customers, and the economic growth of the state, are expected to increase the demand for electricity. Meeting this growing demand requires upgrading and expansion of the transmission and distribution network in the state.
