Replication data for: How Do Electricity Shortages Affect Industry? Evidence from India

Hunt Allcott, Allan Collard-Wexler & Stephen D. O'Connell
We estimate the effects of electricity shortages on Indian manufacturers, instrumenting with supply shifts from hydroelectric power availability. We estimate that India's average reported level of shortages reduces the average plant's revenues and producer surplus by 5 to 10 percent, but average productivity losses are significantly smaller because most inputs can be stored during outages. Shortages distort the plant size distribution, as there are significant economies of scale in generator costs and shortages more severely...
