Hydel power generation at its peak in Himachal

Hydro power projects in Himachal Pradesh are not only generating sufficient electricity, but bringing in revenue of Rs. 35 crores daily to the State.

Shimla, May 31 : Hydro power projects in Himachal Pradesh are not only generating sufficient electricity, but bringing in revenue of Rs. 35 crores daily to the State.

"We are selling about 1000 lakh units per day to the Northern Grid apart from the two northern states of Delhi and Punjab. We are selling each unit of power on an average of Rs. 3.50 and it gives us revenue of Rs. 35 crores per day," claimed Vidya Stokes, the state's Power Minister.

Himachal Pradesh has the largest number of hydel power generating units in the country and caters to the power needs of Punjab, Rajasthan, Delhi and Uttar Pradesh.

The hydropower projects on the rivers Sutlej, Baspa, Chenab, Beas and a few more are capable of producing electricity to their full capacity.

Both public and private sector projects like the Nathpa-Jhakri, Baspa, Bhawa and Chamera are operating to their optimum utility levels.

The State has already witnessed investment to the tune of rupees 60,000 crores in the hydropower sector, and over the next three years the total could touch 10000 mega watts.

Further over the next decade, another 80,000 crores of rupees will be pumped in to generate 21,000 mega watts of electrical energy.
