Outsourcing IT to India

Just a thought to companies planning to outsource IT operations to India and other countries, have you considered the energy impact?
India's power is in very short supply and 70% of the countries electricity is generated using coal fired power stations.
More information on India's energy mix can be found on this link:

Is it not extremely unethical to utilise a country for outsourced IT power when it cannot even supply power to its own citizens?

I'll leave that for the reader to think about, for me, its wrong and UK based companies should seriously reconsider all aspects of outsourcing not just the cost, because it will turn out to be more expensive in the long run.
