State run Powergrid has established a 220kV voltage level substation at a high altitude of over 11,500 ft in Leh-Ladakh to provide better power connectivity to difficult mountainous regions. This is the first project to be set up at such a high altitude.
The project was launched in 2014 and will now provide delivery of power from the Nimmo Bazgo (3x15MW) Hydro-electric power stations in Leh/Ladhakh Region to remote areas.
Khalsti-Kargil-Drass-Alusteng(Srinagar) section of the project is under progress, which upon completion, will facilitate transfer of power to Ladakh region, directly from Northern Grid, in all seasons, with reliability.
