After spending months conducting surveys in every street of Gurgaon, the government of Haryana is all set to implement the Rs 1,382 crore plan for implementing the smart grid project in Gurgaon.
While the central and state government will contribute around Rs 276 cr each (comprising 40% of the project cost), the balance 60% or Rs 829 cr will met by way of debt.
A review meeting on the smart grid project was held on Monday by Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar along with union power, coal, mines and RE minister, Piyush Goyal.
The project will not only ensure uninterrupted supply of power in Gurgaon city but will also put an end to the diesel generated costly power being used by industrial units in the city as also being supplied by builders and colonisers to residents of Gurgaon at a very high price of anywhere between Rs 14-20 a unit as against the average tariff of Rs 3-4 a unit for electricity supplied through the grid in the country.
In fact, the Vidyut Parvah mobile of the power ministry showed availability of 6,256 mw of power at just Rs 2.18 a unit (at 1.30 am on July 12).
Goyal said this project will prove a milestone in the field of power supply in the country.
