Both projects require AC power to be fed into the Rampura 132/33kV Madhya Pradesh Power Transmission Company, Jabalpur substation at 33 kV. The circuits used for each project are different. Developers would need to get approval from Madhya Pradesh Paschim Kshetra Vidyut Vitaran Company (MPPTCL) in order to gain connectivity.
