The southern grid will get an additional 4,000 MW of power in the next one year to mitigate the woes of electricity-deficit states, Union Power Minister Piyush Goyal said today.

Power transmission capacity to the southern grid has been improved by 71 per cent in the last 18 months, thereby enabling transmission of more power from the north, Goyal said, addressing a meeting. Earlier, the minister dedicated the 1600-MW super critical mega Damodaram Sanjeevaiah Thermal Power Station of the Andhra Pradesh Power Generation Corporation at Krishnapatnam, 20-km from here. By 2020, an additional 18,000 MW of power would be made available to the southern grid, he said.
