Establishment of Transmission System
Our core business is the transmission of electric power. As on 30th April 2017, we own and operate more than 1,39,708 Ckt. kms network of transmission lines, 2,92,543 MVA transformation capacity and 220 nos. substations that constitutes most of India’s interstate and inter-regional electric power transmission system and carries electric power across India. Total Inter-regional power transfer capacity is 75,050 MW.
As on Jan 1st, 2015, we have 87 transmission projects in various stages of implementation which include 18 nos. Generation linked Projects with cost of approx.
