Against the expected demand of electricity of 375MVA during the year 2009-10 the peak load observed was 341MVA. The expected peak load for the year 2010-11 is 390MVA which is likely to increase to 430MVA by 2012 and 650MVA by 2020.
The distribution system comprises of 3 Nos. 66KV substations, 19 Nos. 33KV substations and 428 Nos. 11KV substations. The distribution system in NDMC area is through underground cables.
Improvement of system by augmenting the transforming capacity of various existing sub-stations, erection of new sub-stations, laying of new feeders to meet the rising load demand and to ensure uninterrupted qualities supply to its consumers and improvement of street lighting is main objective of the Deptt.
In order to meet the existing as well as future power requirements, the infrastructure is required to be augmented substantially for which various sub-stations of 66KV, 33KV & 11KV will have to be established, keeping in view the short term and long term requirement as under:-
