Reportedly, Gujarat Energy Transmission Corporation (GETCO) has announced plans to invest Rs 960 billion over the next eight years to develop transmission infrastructure within the state.

 This significant investment aims to support the evacuation of the rapidly growing renewable energy capacity, particularly in sparsely populated areas like Kachchh and northern Gujarat. Currently, Gujarat has a total of 26,005 MW of renewable energy capacity, comprising 11,823 MW of wind and 14,182 MW of solar. The state anticipates adding 22,546 MW of wind and 24,694 MW of solar capacity between 2024-25 and 2030-31, bringing the total renewable energy capacity to 73,245 MW. Additionally, Gujarat plans to add 2,458 MW of coal capacity in 2028-29 and 1,620 MW of hydro capacity over the same period. The development of adequate transmission capacity is essential to support these expansions and ensure efficient energy distribution to major consumption centers such as Ahmedabad, Morbi, Rajkot, and Vadodara.
