Indore (Madhya Pradesh): With the scorching heat baking residents, the city has seen a significant increase in electricity demand which reached close to 700 MW. The maximum demand recorded on Monday was around 680 MW. If the heat continues to increase, the maximum electricity demand will exceed 700 MW in the next two days, said Madhya Pradesh West Zone Electricity Distribution Company. 

The historical increase in demand in summer is due to the running of about 3.25 lakh air conditioners, 20 lakh fans, 4.5 lakh coolers and about 6 lakh refrigerators. Apart from this, there is also an increase in the demand for industrial electricity. 

In the commercial capital of the state, a lot of electricity is being supplied to the markets and malls also. At the same time, a large amount of electricity is being used in other appliances in thousands of offices and seven lakh houses. This has resulted in the total demand touching almost 700 MW.
