Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL) has decided to upgrade the power infrastructure in all villages of the state. It includes feeder separation that refers to the power supply to agricultural and non-agricultural consumers separately through dedicated feeders, which regulate power supply to agricultural consumers as and when needed.

This was stated by Jiwan Kansal, Chief Engineer, distribution, West Zone, here.

"The core objective of feeder separation is to provide regulated supply to agricultural consumers and continuous supply to non-agricultural consumers in rural areas," he said.

"Preference will be given to those villages having no case of power theft and the PSPCL will develop such villages as role models in terms of extraordinary power facilities," he added.

Kansal said priority would be given to such villages where power consumers do not steal electricity, adding that supply would be restored on a priority in those villages in case of power outage due to inevitable situation. He said in the paddy season uninterrupted power supply would be given in such villages.

"The PSPCL is a commercial organisation and it requires financial resources on a day-to-day basis for providing reliable and uninterrupted power to 96 lakhs consumers in the state," he said.
