Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company supplies the electricity and the electricians of the city ensure the uninterrupted generation of electricity and the supply of energy to the customers.
Fossil fuels: Coal and natural gas is used to fuel thermal power plants to generate power. Though coal is more common but of late the use of natural gas is becoming common due to environmental concerns. Fossil fuels are burned to generate energy. The combustion of fuels also produces carbon monoxide and sulphur dioxide which causes pollution and contributes to Global warming.
Solar energy: With abundant sunlight all through the year except a few months of monsoon from June to September, generating energy from solar panels fixed on the roofs of houses, commercial buildings and business houses are quite common site in the city. With the help from the electricians the wiring is done and system installed to convert Direct Current (DC) generated from solar panels to Alternate Current (AC) since the home appliance and electrical equipment runs on Alternate current.
Wind energy: The natural movement of wind is harness to generate electricity in windmill farms which can be commonly sighted in the outskirts of the city. Large turbines moved by the power of wind turn the generator to produce power.
Hydroelectric energy: Using the power of water from the Pavana dam located 35 km. from Pimpri-Chinchwad electricity is generated to provide power to the industries and houses of the city.
Sugarcane bagasse: Maharashtra is a major producer of sugarcane. The fiber left after extracting sugarcane juice is available in abundance which is then burned in broilers to generate electricity. Harmful emission from the burning of sugarcane roughage is lower than that of fossil fuels.
