Government to Evacuate 9 GW of Renewable Power from Rajasthan and Karnataka


The Indian government has given the go-ahead for new Interstate Transmission System (ISTS) projects that will improve the infrastructure for green energy. These projects try to get 9 GW of power from renewable sources out of Karnataka and Rajasthan. Moving electricity from one place to another where it is needed is what evacuation power means.

The first activity is focused on evacuating electricity from Rajasthan’s Renewable Energy Zone. This project is intended to allow the transport of 4.5 GW of renewable energy power from various power production complexes throughout the state. Specifically, it will evacuate 1 GW from the Fatehgarh complex, 2.5 GW from the Barmer complex, and 1 GW from the Nagaur (Merta) complex. Power will be directed to Uttar Pradesh’s Mainpuri Region, Fatehpur, and Orai. The program, costing ₹ 12,241 crore, is scheduled to be finished within two years.

The second project focuses on Karnataka’s System Strengthening Scheme. The goal is to evacuate 4.5 GW of renewable energy generated in the Koppal and Gadag regions. The project is estimated to cost around ₹1,354 crore and is scheduled to be completed by June 2027.

With the implementation of approved projects, it is expected that India will make significant progress toward its ambitious target of establishing 500 GW of capacity for renewable energy by the year 2030. Through the use of the Tariff Based Competitive Bidding (TBCB) method, these initiatives have already established a connection between the grid and 200 GW of the target.
