Discoms augment distribution infrastructure for faultless power supply in summers

With the peak power demand of Delhi expected to cross 7,400 MW this summer, the power discoms have resorted to capacity addition, besides augmenting infrastructure, for faultless supply of electricity to their customers.

Strengthening their networks, the BSES Yamuna Power Limited(BYPL) and the BSES Rajdhani Power Limited(BRPL) have made capital expenditure of over Rs 800 crore in this regard, a BSES spokesperson said.

“In 2018-19, the BRPL invested Rs 525 crore and BYPL Rs 300 crore to ramped-up the network capacity by around 750 MVA. They also installed (new) and augmented around 600 distribution transformers and laid over 650 km of cable to strengthen the network,” he said.
