The past few days gave us good, strong showers of rain that were long overdue. But heavy rains also brought with them longer power cuts to many homes. But, to have power interruptions we do not need heavy rains - the current supply could be knocked out even by the weakest of winds and the lightest among drizzles. While such power cuts certainly are an inconvenience and a nuisance to us consumers, they also reflect a far more serious problem. They indicate inefficiencies in our electrical network that directly result in huge losses to the public money.
