Chandigarh, Dec 11 (UNI) The Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN) has completed the work of erection of High Voltage Distribution System (HVDS) in 71 villages and low Voltage Distribution System in six villages under its revenue protection project.
A spokesman of DHBVN said here today that under the project the Nigam was laying distribution system of international standard in villages of the state.
In the villages having more than 300 houses, there would be HVDS while in the villages having up to 300 residential dwellings, there would be ABC (armoured cables or shielded cables) based distribution system. The Nigam has selected 2,001 villages for HVDS and 1,119 villages for ABC based Distribution System in its area comprising of districts Sirsa, Fatehabad, Hisar, Bhiwani, Mahendragarh, Rewari, Mewat, Gurgaon and Faridabad.
Under the HVDS, all low tension transmission lines in the villages are being replaced with high tension lines in a way that they are accident free and groups of 15 to 25 consumers are being given connections from one transformer so that sufficient voltage is provided and there is no overloading of transformers. Moreover, in case of failure of a transformer, a small number of consumers would be affected. Each consumer would be given connection from a distribution box under this system by installing electronic meter of latest technology. While under the ABC based Distribution System, aerial bunched cable (ABC) or armoured (steel and rubber coated) cables would be erected for power supply.
The spokesman said that while creating the new system of distribution, all meters of consumers would be shifted from their houses to outside on the boundary walls or poles.
The people would also be persuaded to install compact fluorescent lamps instead of traditional incandescent bulbs and T-5 tubes in place of T-12 tubes so as to ensure lower bills and to reduce load on the system.
