Government of India has set a target for establishing 175 GW renewable capacity by 2022, which includes 100 GW from Solar and 60 GW from Wind. This includes solar generaton potential of about 20 GW in Rajasthan. Transmission system for evacuation of 8.9 GW under phase-I has already been taken up for implementation. Transmission system strengthening scheme for evacuation of power from solar energy zones in Rajasthan (11.1 GW – 3 GW through intra state) under Phase II, inter-alia includes evacuation of 1.05GW in Bhadla complex, 2.2GW in Fatehgarh complex, 1.9GW in Ramgarh and 2.95 GW in Bikaner.
For integration and evacuation of power from generation projects in the above areas, a high capacity 765kV and 400kV transmission system interconnecting Bhadla-II, Fatehgarh-II, Sikar & Khetri along with establishment of 765/400kV new substation at Sikar-II & Narela and 400/220kV new substation at Bikaner-II & Ramgarh-II have been planned.
The subject transmission scheme involves establishment of 765/400kV Sikar-II S/s & implementation of Bhadla- II PS – Sikar-II PS 765kV D/c & Sikar-II – Neemrana 400kV D/c line which shall facilitate in transfer of power from RE sources in Ramgarh, Fatehgarh & Bhadla complexes for onward dispersal of power to various beneficiaries.
