The generating Units at each Power House of Stage-I can be put in service with minimum flow of 1600 cusecs. The Mukerian Hydel Project Stage-I generates electrical energy at 11 KV and after stepping up to 132 KV, the same is transmitted to Grid system at 132 KV. Power House No.1, is connected with Power House No.2 and Power House No.2 with Power House No.3 and, Power House No.3 with Power House No.4 through 132 KV double circuit lines carried on towers. There are four 132 KV circuit lines  for evacuation of electric energy generated, two numbers at Power House No.2 to Jalandhar (through 132 KV Bhogpur and 132 KV Tanda circuits) and other two at Power House No.4 through 132 KV Sri-Hargobindpur Circuit I&II.

Power at Stage-II of Mukerian Hydel Project is generation at 11KV and stepped up to 66KV.  Generated power at Stage-II is evacuated through 66KV single circuit to 66KV Bhattian Jattan Sub-station and 2nd 66KV Single circuit to Power House No.4 of Stage-I of Mukerian Hydel Project.
