Beijing has invested over $2.91 billion to increase its grid capacity so that there is no outage problem in Olympic Games. Beijing has built nearly 100 transformer stations to increase power supply for Olympic Games. Thousands of workers have worked for the city so that there is no outage problem during games. According to State Grid Corporation of china, there has been a power shortage of nearly 17.16 GW which the company is trying to supply.
Major part of energy supply is coming from Shanxi and Inner Mongolia so that there is no outage problem in Beijing. Shanxi has major power shortage during summer. But power shortage has eased in Shanxi to below 1.5 GW, an improvement from the 5 GW earlier. The countries leading power generating groups like china huaneng group, china dating group, china guodian group, china huadian group and china power investment group will see losses in its business in the first half of the year.

People in Lucknow were angry with the government due to repeated power outage problem. Residents blocked the Lucknow-Rae Bareli highway for this reason. It was not until police intervened that the blockade was removed. Residents said that there were power cuts ranging from 10 to 18 hours in a day. They urged the Lucknow electricity supply administration (LESA) to take immediate action. But the residents got a poor response from LESA. This was not the first time that the residents were agitating in protest of poor power situation in their locality. The residents were following Gandhi's way of non-violence. But LESA do not understand the language of gandhigiri.
Residents are facing the outage problem from last 2 years ever since this area has witnessed substantial growth. Feeders develop snags and transformers get burned. If the transformers are overloaded then why do the authorities not improve the infrastructure? Many areas in and around UPIL are also facing outage problem after a 5 MVA transformer developed a snag. Many areas are facing outage problems in Lucknow.
