Chandigarh, Oct 29 (UNI) In view of the annual load growth of over 10 per cent in Karnal district, the Uttar Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (UHBVN) and the Haryana Vidyut Prasaran Nigam (HVPN) have made a comprehensive plan to strengthen the transmission and distribution system to meet the upcoming load requirements.
An official spokesman said here today a new 220 KV sub station would be set up at Bastara village, having two transformers of 100 mega volt amperes each to cater the need of paddy growing area.
The power utilities would consruct two new substations at village Sita Mai and Nadana. It has also been proposed to upgrade the existing 33 KV substations to 132 KV level at Nagla Megha, Bhadson, Staundi and Ramba.
Besies, the UHBVN plans to construct 33 KV sub stations at Dabarthala, Kaimla, Chochra, Kalram, Shahpur, Gullarpur, Barota, Raipur Jattan and Dadlana.
It has been decided to create the High Voltage Distribution System and Aerial Bunched Cable Based System in seven residential colonies and 36 villages at a cost of over Rs 5.65 crore.
This would minimise damage to distribution transformers and give a new look to the concerned areas.
Referring to segregation of load on 11 KV feeders supplying power to domestic and tubewell consumers of rural areas under the Rajiv Gandhi Grameen Vidyutikaran Yojna, the spokesman said 108 feeders had been identified for the purpose in the first phase.
The work on these feeders was in progress and likely to be completed within next two months. Consumers of as many as 517 villages would be benefited by this scheme.
He said the Nigam has targeted to release 670 new tubewell connections to the applicants during the current financial year. A system improvement action plan was being prepared to install new distribution transformers and replace the undersize conductor and cable as per technical requirements.
