In the assembly conducted on August,11th,2014, J.Jayalalitha announced that Rs.5284 crore has been sanctioned by Tamil Nadu government to boost the power distribution and transmission infrastructure. Making a statement, the chief minister reported 2500 km of high tension transmission lines along with the creation of 60 new sub-stations will be done. To prop up the power infrastructure in the city, the civic personals has established 2 additional 230 KV substations, one at Porur and another at West Mambalam at a price of Rs.338 crore. At Kamudhi in Ramanathapuram district, a 400 KV substation has been planned to establish at an expenses of Rs.435 crore. Another costing Rs.48 crore has been sanctioned to build at Muthuramalingapuram in Virudhunagar.  These will be utilized to uplink with the solar power that is been generated in the districts to the state network.  

Once, these thermal power plants were completely installed as planned, no power problem will be faced by people of Tamil Nadu. Interestingly, people residing at Amarprakash communities haven’t faced this problem from the day they took up their possession because power backup service is been installed. This is one reason for the non-existence of negative customer feedback for Amarprakash builders till date. National Thermal Power Corporation and TANGEDCO signed a joint venture agreement to create the third power unit of 500 MW in Vallur Thermal Power project. The process would start its commercial production by the end of this month.    

To enhance the distribution of power, around 28000 transformers would be created. For this, the government has allotted Rs.660 crore during this quarter. More than 10 lacs new power connection would be offered to the home owners. Rs.120 crore has been given for the process of renovation and also to rises the installed capacity of the 2 units of Sholayar Hydro Electric Project Phase-1. Accordingly, this process increases the capacity to 42 MW from 35 MW. J.Jayalalitha informed that the state would get more than 2000 MW, also from the atomic and thermal power plants. From the long term power purchase signed this August, more than 1000 MW will be received which already has been getting 224 MW. The agreements were signed for the capacity of 3330 Mega Watt from 2014-2015 over 15 years. The balance could be got during the year 2015-15 for TANGEDCO (Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Corporation).   

Unit-1 of the project is also a joint venture between Neyveli Lignite Corporation and TANGEDCO. The process will get started by October, while unit-2 project will be started in next March. From these projects, Tamil Nadu will receive 387 Mega Watt Power. The 2 units of Neyveli Lignite Corporation would produce 230 MW to the Tamil Nadu and it is about to begin its commercial production during this current year.
