Due to the heat, the electricity consumption in Delhi is also sky-high. According to the officials of the electricity department, the demand for 8,302 megawatts (MW) of electricity in the national capital has been the highest so far in the summer season. The biggest reason for this is said to be the excessive use of AC by the people of Delhi.
