Power (Himachal)

Power (Himachal)

Himachal Pradesh is extremely rich in its hydel resources. The state is having about twenty five percent of the national potential in this aspect. It has been estimated that about 20,300 MW of hydel power can be generated in the state by the construction of various hydel projects on the five river basins no matter they are major medium or small. The state government has been giving the highest priority for its development, since hydel generation can meet the growing need of power for industry, agriculture and rural electrification. It is also the biggest source of income to the state as it provides electricity to the other states also.
One of the major project on river Sutlej in the state is the "Nathpa Jhakri" which generates nearly 1500MW of electricity. The following project is funded by World Bank. [ [http://www.webindia123.com/himachal/economy/power.htm Power resources of Himachal] ]
