Eight new power substations are being set up in Bodh Gaya, Manpur, Khizarsarai, Banke Bazar and Wazirganj blocks of the district, South Bihar Power Distribution Company Limited (SBPDCL) executive engineer (project) Balvir Prasad Bagish said.
While power supply will start from two substations at Mahkar (Khizarsarai) and Bakraur (Bodh Gaya) from July 20, the other six would be functional by the end of this year. The power substations are being set up at an estimate cost of Rs4 crore each under the Union government’s Deen Dayal Gram Jyoti Yojana and the state plan.
Each substation would have two power transformers of five MVA each. One transformer can supply power to 50 transformers of 200 kVA each. The new substations are being set up to meet the increasing power requirements as every household has got a power connection in the villages. Every year, the load on transformers is increasing and infrastructure to meet the requirement has to be kept ready. Within the last three years, 24 new power substations have been set up across the district under Deen Dayal Jyoti Yojana and the state plan.
