To cut power transmission losses and strengthen its power distribution and infrastructure, Gujarat government will invest around Rs 1,500 crore in the next three years.
The State aims to bring down transmission and distribution (T&D) losses to 15 per cent, DJ Pandian, Principal Secretary (Energy), government of Gujarat said.
Pandian recently said that the spend will be directed to modernising transmission and distribution networks, increasing surveillance and additional deployment of manpower.
Most of it will be channelled towards the Saurashtra region where maximum distribution and transmission losses are recorded, he said. This would mark a complete transmission in Gujarat’s power sector, where T&D losses were a substantial 35.27 per cent, with frequent load shedding in 2001.
Presently, the State has surplus power of 2,000 mw, even as 18,000 villages get round-the-clock electricity supply. Currently, Paschim Gujarat Vij Company (PGVCL), the distribution company responsible for the Saurashtra region, reportedly has T&D losses of 29 per cent. Thus, if Saurashtra is brought in line with the other regions of Gujarat, the 15 per cent target will become a reality.
