Pyramid Urban Homes residents complain about frequent power outages

Power outages and voltage fluctuations have been reported by residents of Pyramid Urban Homes two in Sector 86.

According to the residents, their flats are served by 11 kV feeder lines. They claimed that despite collecting an average of Rs 50,000 per flat in electricity infrastructure development charges, the developer has yet to construct a 33 kV switching station. The result is daily power outages of two to three hours.

A temporary electricity connection of 11 kV has been obtained by the builder. Regular power outages occur here, causing hardship for those who work from home and interfering with children's studies.

Even in the winter, when consumption is lower, they are subjected to frequent power outages. The majority of the residents have installed inverters, but they occasionally run out of batteries, one of the residents, RK Jain, explained.

In December 2020, the developer began distributing flats to homeowners. The society, which has 863 apartments, is home to over 600 families. According to the families, they filed complaints about the situation, but neither the developer nor the electricity department paid attention to their concerns.

When asked about the 33 kV switching station, the developer never responds and is always evasive. The developer and the discom continue to blame each other.

In the case of electricity bills, there is no transparency. Another resident, Vijay Singh Saroa, said that they are charged Rs 6.5 per unit and give Rs 200 per month as fixed charges.

SDO Manesar Gaurav Dahiya said there is no shortage of power supply from their side. The 33 kV switching station must be built by all developers from sectors 58 to 115, either individually or in collaboration with other builders.
