According to data published by GRID-INDIA, in October ’23, the country’s energy consumption reached 139 billion units, marking a substantial 22% year-on-year increase due to a surge in electricity demand owing to increase in electricity consumption, below-average rainfall in October, and a lower base from the same month last year.
