One pooling substation of 220/66kV or 220/33kV is proposed for each 250MW segments for onward transmission of solar power. 250 MW segments is further subdivided into 5 blocks each having capacity of 50 MW. Each 50 MW block shall be connected to the solar park first at either 220/66kV or 220/33kV pooling substation through 66kV/33kV double circuit underground cables wherein the voltage will be stepped up to 220kV which will be further stepped up to 400kV at the proposed 400kV/220kV PGCIL station at solar park. Subsequently, the 400kV/220kV PGCIL station will be connected to 765kV/400kV PGCIL station located at Vasanthanarasapura in Tumkur and 400/220kV substation at Gooty in Andhra pradesh.
