Himachal Pradesh: Nod To 200-km Wangtoo Power Transmission Line



The chances of tapping the 3,000 MW unexplored power potential in the Sutlej basin have brightened with the Centre giving nod for the laying of a transmission line near Wangtoo to evacuate power from the tribal districts of Kinnaur and Lahaul Spiti. Several mega projects have been in the pipeline but not executed for want of a transmission line. A high-level team from the Central Electricity Regulatory Authority and Powergrid visited the area to assess the feasibility of the almost 200-km transmission line which would cost over Rs 3,000 crore. The state government too has shot off a letter to the Power Ministry following receiving the approval.
