Power Cuts in Thanjavur cross 9 hours every day

Power Cuts are increasing in satellite towns and semi-urban, rural places. This is to show graphically, the plight, which happens even on a weekday. 

For those interested, the data used is also here.


Here's the data collected today, manually though, but automating this will be done down the week.

Date Day Cut Restored Duration Percent of Day Number
12-02-2012 Sun 00:44 01:45 01:01 4.24% 1
12-02-2012 Sun 06:00 07:00 01:00 4.17% 2
12-02-2012 Sun 08:59 11:59 03:00 12.51% 3
12-02-2012 Sun 15:00 17:59 02:59 12.44% 4
12-02-2012 Sun 18:46 19:29 00:43 2.99% 5
12-02-2012 Sun 21:03 21:44 00:41 2.85% 6



(Sum) 09:24 60.74% 7






Almost 39% of the day is a power cut. This data does not confirm or correlate that the same timings will be in effect tomorrow, much of it has been uncertain, making it difficult to work. Communication networks have not been disrupted, though street lighting has been massively affected. Hopefully we could automate this data collection with simple systems .
