    UP govt to set up 80 new power sub-stations


    May 6, 2022 - The Pioneer

     

      Lucknow, May 7 -- In order to augment power supply and infrastructure, the Uttar Pradesh government has prepared an action plan for setting up 80 new power sub-stations of higher capacity to ensure uninterrupted supply of electricity. In addition, 2.67 crore pre-paid smart meters will be installed across the state.

      Being the most populous state of the country, there is a continuous surge in the demand for electricity in Uttar Pradesh. To meet the growing demand and provide uninterrupted power supply, the Yogi Adityanath government is constantly making efforts towards augmenting the infrastructure.

      The state government has planned to set up 80 new grid power sub-stations which include two of 756 kV, six of 400 kV, 24 of 220 kV and 48 of 132 kV capacities in the next five years. This will make a total of 173 major sub-stations in the state which will benefit about 30 lakh consumers.

      The aggregate technical and commercial (AT & C) losses are targeted to be brought down to 16.38 per cent by the end of the financial year 2024-25.

      Along with this, the government will install 2.67 crore pre-paid smart meters in the next five years. This will depend on the availability of meters. By the end of the financial year 2024-25, 593 sub-stations of 33/11 kV will be set up for power distribution. Significantly, the government has made arrangements for timely repair, replacement and load balance of transformers for uninterrupted supply of electricity.

      The electricity demand of the state has suddenly increased and reached about 22,500 megawatt. Despite this, the Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation Limited is making efforts on a war footing to provide uninterrupted power supply in the state.

      For this, work is being done for restoring the thermal power generation units which are closed for technical or any other reasons. The power utility is constantly monitoring the 24-hour power supply through control rooms in all distribution corporations. Toll-free number 1912 is being continuously monitored to provide better facilities to the consumers. Efforts are being made to rectify the local faults in the shortest possible time.
