Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Friday dedicated two 66 K.V. grid sub-stations, in Mansa and Mohali districts to the people of Punjab through video conferencing.
With the commissioning of the Moosa (Mansa) grid sub-station, residents of Moosa village will now get electricity on urban pattern, while the Ramgarh Bhudda grid in Mohali district would provide relief to the consumers of Zirakpur city from prolonged power cuts and provide better power supply.
The Moosa grid sub-station has been constructed at a cost of Rs. 1.5 crore while Rs. 10 crore has been spent on the Ramgarh Bhudda grid sub-station.
Underscoring his government’s commitment to provide quality, reliable and uninterrupted power supply to the people of state, and also better services to the power consumers of Punjab, the Chief Minister said the Moosa sub-station would greatly boost power supply to the agricultural consumers of Moosa, Autianwali, Manbibrhian villages.

Constructed with modern and latest technology, the Moosa sub-station will be unmanned but will regulate supply power based on modern information technology. A 6.3 / 8 MVA capacity transformer has been installed at this grid sub-station, which has been charged by T-off from Jhunir to Raipur.
