    Grid extension cost

    C4D Enthusiast

      Hi all - I am looking for some real numbers to determine the grid extension cost. It has been published multiple times in the literature that it doesnt make economical sense for rural electrification. But I need some numbers to see where it makes sense and where it doesnt (whats the cost per km, what are the expected number of users, whats the cutoff, how does it change by geography etc.). I am looking for numbers mainly for India. Is there any recent publication on grid extension costs etc.? Thanks!
