North–South Power Transmission Enhancement Project (formerly Power Distribution Project)
The project will construct a 500-kilovolt (kV) transmission line about 225 kilometers (km) long across the Hindukush mountain range between the northern town of Dashte Alwan and Kabul, at the southern end. It will include a new 500-kV / 220-kV substation to connect to the grid in Kabul, Afghanistan's capital.
The project will increase power trade between Afghanistan and its neighbors, and a higher rate of electrification within the country.
