Reuters reveals India’s power grid creaks under hybrid work model, heatwave

Reuters shed light on how Indians are cranking up air conditioning as they still work from home, while lights come back on in offices and factories with an end to COVID curbs, upending power demand patterns amid a heatwave and the country’s worst blackouts in years. India has traditionally seen peak demand late in the evening when people head back home, but that has shifted to mid-afternoon when temperatures are hottest, driven by record residential daytime use, an increase in industrial work and more use of irrigation pumps to tap higher solar supply.
