Live Mint – In an indication of growing appetite for electricity in India, the country’s per capita electricity consumption has reached 1010 kilowatt-hour (kWh) in 2014-15, compared with 957 kWh in 2013-14 and 914.41 kWh in 2012-13, according to the Central Electricity Authority (CEA), India’s apex power sector planning body.
“The per capita electricity consumption reached 1010 kWh some time back,” said a senior government official, requesting anonymity.
But experts are far from enthused from the increasing consumption figure.
