Gets Approval for 4,000 MW Renewable Energy Power Project
A 4,000 MW renewable energy project was approved for Tamil Nadu by the Union Minister for New & Renewable Energy and Power.
Integral to the Green Energy Corridor Phase-II, the project encompasses the establishment of 624 circuit kilometers of transmission lines and 2,200 MVA capacity substations.
The Ministry of New & Renewable Energy has given the nod to this monumental project, which comes with an estimated cost of ₹719.76 crore.
The driving force behind this project’s implementation is the state agency Tamil Nadu Transmission Corporation Limited (TANTRANSCO).
As part of the Green Energy Corridor Phase-I, TANTRANSCO had already accomplished the sanctioned project for the installation of 1,068 ckm transmission lines and 1,910 MVA capacity substations by October 31, 2022.
By harnessing 4,000 MW of renewable power capacity, Tamil Nadu is positioning itself as a key player in India’s transition to a cleaner and greener energy future.
