Project description:

The purpose of the project activity is to generate electricity using renewable hydro energy and supply it to various consumers through NR grid. In the NR grid more than 70% of the power supplied is generated using fossil fuels (coal, Diesel, Gas etc). And as the project activity is a renewable energy based power project, it will reduce anthropogenic Green House Gases (GHG)emissions that would have been generated to supply power to NR grid using fossil fuel.


The project activity shall also contribute to sustainable development1 in following manner:

- Sustainable development through utilization of renewable hydro resources available in the project region.

- Catering to power demand in Northern India by augmenting power supply in the NR Grid.

- Conservation of natural resources (like coal, gas, petroleum fuels etc.) through use of renewable source of energy.

- Adhering & contributing to Indiaโ€™s national policy of promoting clean power.

- Providing Employment opportunities2 to local community during plant construction and operations

- Development of infrastructure in the region

- Implementation of the project activity would catalyse implementation of other similar hydro power projects in India by private players.
