Lucknow: Summertime often results in massive load shedding with long drawn powercuts. To stem the problem of prolonged powercuts, efforts are being made on a war footing to increase the transmission capacity to ensure high quality, cut-free power supply in the state.
The transmission capacity has been increased to 25000 MW in the last 4 years. By the year 2022, this capacity is expected to reach 28000 MW.
State’s Energy and Additional Energy Resources Minister Shrikant Sharma while reviewing the UP Power Transmission Corporation said that since the year 2017 till now, 121 transmission substations have been constructed with an amount of 12 thousand 182 crores.
Necessary transmission system for energy extraction from thermal projects being set up in the state is being constructed through Public Private Partnership (PPP), under which 400 KV substations Firozabad and Budaun have been activated. 765 KV sub-stations Meerut, Rampur and 400 KV sub-centres Simbhavali and Sambhal are also under construction.
2433.70 crore has been invested in these projects. These projects will be set in motion in this financial year. The Energy Minister said that the government wants to provide 24 hours cut-free power supply to the people of the state.
But this can be possible only when our transmission system is capable of carrying electricity to all the areas. After the formation of the government, serious work has been done on it, under which 765 KV sub-station was constructed in Hapur district through PPP mode. One thousand crore rupees were spent on this. Similarly, 12 400 KV sub-stations have been constructed at Mathura (Math), Banda, Bijnor (Nehtaur-PPP), Agra (South Agra), Ghaziabad (Attaur-PPP), Ghaziabad (Indrapuram-PPP), Ghaziabad (Dasna-PPP), Manufactured at Prayagraj (Masauli), Gautam Budh Nagar (Noida Sector-148), Gautam Budh Nagar (Noida Sector-123), Firozabad (PPP) and Badaun (PPP). 4484.41 thousand crores were spent on these.
