Currently, the total power consumers are 48 million across the country.

Nasrul Hamid said the power supply was disrupted mainly by the falling of trees on the transmission and distribution lines.

He said that many electric poles were uprooted by the cyclone that caused blackout in many areas.

The state minister, however, said the total damage was not calculated yet.

“It will take some more time to get a complete picture of the damages”, he said.
