Tangedco in pact with GMR for uninterrupted power scheme

OUR BUREAU Chennai | Updated on January 09, 2018

State power distribution company Tangedco will establish 230 KV substation and dedicated power feeders to provide uninterrupted power to the industrial park of GMR in Krishnagiri district.

An MoU was signed between Tangedco and GMR Krishnagiri SEZ on Tuesday in the presence of State Power Minister P Thangamani.

Dedicated feeder

Tangedco will set up a substation and dedicated feeder at its own cost on the lands provided by GMR at Uthanapalli village, according to an official statement.

The move is part of the Tamil Nadu government’s new initiative under the ‘ease of doing business’ programme, under which Tangedco will forge agreements with industries to provide uninterrupted power, thereby enhancing industrial development in the State.

Also, industrial consumers will be allowed to set up sub-stations and associated infrastructure on their own if they wish. If a second source of supply is needed by industrial units, Tangedco will establish a second feeder for the same.

PoS machines

In yet another consumer-centric initiative, Tangedco has introduced point of sales (PoS) machines so that the consumers can pay their electricity charges through debit/credit cards.

Initially, this system will be implemented in offices under Mylapore division from October 31.
