Greater Noida's Power woes to be "turned off" - Transformer of 63 MVA is being set up near RC Greens in Greater Noida
People won’t have to bare hours’ long power cuts in sweltering summers ahead. The Noida Power Corporation Limited (NPCL) is going to increase its electricity production so as to meet the increased electricity demand during summer.
The transformer of 63 MVA is being set up near RC Greens in Greater Noida. The officials termed the transformer a sort of power house as it is of much higher capacity that that of the existing transformers. “The cost of the transformer is around 22 crores. The work of installation would be completed by first week of June,” said Rajeev Goyal, Senior Manager (Operation) NPCL.
Besides, a substation is also being set up at Gharbara, near Gautam Buddha University. The purpose of the substation is to streamline the power distribution in the area. The cost of the substation is around 35 crores and its capacity would be of 100MVA. “The power distribution is also equally important as its generation. And the substation was the only option left with us for the efficient electricitydistribution in the city”, added Goyal.
Presently, the city is being subjected to the acute power crisis. If the people are to be believed, in summer the roistering increases for around 3 hours. But to the much relief of the people, roistering in Greater Noida would no more be a problem in near future. People welcomed the efforts of NPCL and said, “It a major step for the development of the city.”
“Power supply plays an important role in the development of any city. If the city will get good supply it will automatically attract the people, thus will help in the development,” said Virendra Kumar, a student.
