Chandigarh, Sep 27 (UNI) Realising the fast growing demand for electricity in Faridabad district, the Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN) and the Haryana Vidyut Prasaran Nigam (HVPN) have prepared a long term plan of Rs 3581 crore to augment power transmission and distribution system.
The plan would cater to the load demand for the period up to year 2021, a spokesman for the Haryana Power Utilities said here today.
The DHBVN, he said, planned to create an infrastructural network of 33 KV substations for electricity distribution in the district. Presently, there was a network of 66 KV substations for distribution of power, which were controlled by the HVPN.
''For this, the DHBVN plans to set up 324 new 33 KV substations in the district which would be connected to 220 KV substations to get power. To connect these substations, the Nigam would lay 33 KV lines of a length of 1944 km,'' he said.
In addition, for augmenting the distribution system, DHBVN would lay 7776 km long high tension lines and 10,368 km long low tension lines and would set up 12960 distribution transformers in the district during the period up to 2021.
For feeding these substations and the increased demand of the existing network, the HVPN would set up 17 new 220 KV substations and four new substations of 400 KV level at Nawada, Badshahpur, Ankhir and Faridpur in the district.
