Madhya Pradesh power transmission and distribution system served a peak demand of 8,505 megawatt (MW) and delivered 41,392 gigawatt hours (GWh) in 2012. However, the estimated peak demand was 9,151 MW, resulting in an unmet energy demand of 8,393 GWh (20% of the requirement). 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. New power connections are provided to households under a number of programs, and consumption per customer is also expected to increase in the face of robust economic growth in the state. Therefore, the demand for electricity is expected to increase and meeting this growing demand requires upgrading and expansion of the transmission and distribution network in the state.
