The systems will run through Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Rajasthan. (primarily the western half of the nation)

The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) said: “These States are rich in renewable resource potential and large capacity renewable power projects are planned there. Creation of an intra state transmission system will facilitate evacuation of renewable power from generation stations to load centers.”

The systems would allow power generated to be evacuated to main centers of energy consumption such as Delhi and the state of Maharashtra.

The plans will involve 48 new grid sub-stations with total transformation capacity around 17,100MVA, to be completed over the next three to five years.

Government of India will contribute INR34.2 billion via its National Clean Energy Fund (NCEF), which is roughly 40% of the total cost. A KfW loan will account for another 40% of the cost and the remaining 20% will come from state contributions.
