Once the Central Power Distribution Company Limited CPDCL) receives a nod from the Power Finance Corporation (PFC), our city will get safe and reliable power supply.

Power Finance Corporation announced that five hundred kilometers of 33-KV and 11 KV underground cabling and 300 kilometers of aerial-bunched cables have been proposed for the city. This is part of the Rs.600 crore project under phase-B of the Restricted Accelerated Power Development and Reforms Programme. It is said that they would implement this programme from 2010-11 to 2013-4-14.

Aerial-bunched 11-KV conductors will be used in areas where tree growth is heavy, and in congested areas with limited corridor. Aerial bunching of 150 kilometres of 11-KV conductors has already started on emergency basis and is supposed to get completed within two months.

CPDCL is said to take up construction of 25 new 33/11 KV substations in Malakpet, Tarnaka, Tolichowki, Moti Mahal, Hyderabad Public School, KIMS Hospital, Erramanzil, Chintal Basti, Koti, Basheerabgh, Kondapur, and in few more areas in Ranga Reddy district.
