The Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN) is ready to supply 80MW electricity to DLF for Cyber City, subject to availability of infrastructure such as setting up of substations.
The executives of DLF Limited and officials of the DHBVN held a meeting in this regard a couple of days ago to prepare a road map.
Sanjiv Chopra, chief engineer, DHBVN, said, “We have told DLF to set up two substations of 66 KVA so that we can supply electricity to Cyber City. We have offered electricity to DLF and it is up to the them to decide when they want it.”
DLF spokesperson refused comment on the matter. “I have no idea about this development. I will enquire and comment later,” he said.
Currently, electricity is supplied to Cyber City through a gas station. The DHBVN supplies power at roughly Rs 8 per unit against Rs 11 per unit on the power supplied by the gas station.
DLF Cyber City, DHBVN officials said, requires a minimum of 80 MW electricity daily to run smoothly. Meanwhile, the official said only one substation of 66 KVA is ready and one more of the same capacity has to be constructed by the DLF.
KC Aggarwal, superintending engineer, DHBVN, said, “We have offered DLF that it at least take a partial supply of 15MW from us. Cyber City has a gas plant that generates electricity but the power so generated is much more costlier than DHBVN power. We are ready to supply 15MW electricity to Cyber City as we have adequate electricity and it would not affect the supply to the rest of the city. We can start supply within 15 days.”
DLF and DHBVN officials had met about six months ago in this regard.
“We received a request from DLF and we have been emphasizing on installation of two substations of 66 KVA. DLF’s one substation in Q Block is almost ready and another one is yet to be built. DHBVN supply will help reduce pollution as gas plants cause pollution,” the SE said.
