According to chief engineer during lean season, hydro power stations located in the Northeast, from where most of state’s power requirement was met, were generating less power.
“In addition to the import from these hydro stations, the state is also purchasing power from the thermal stations of Kahalgoan (Bihar), Talcher (Orissa) and Farrakka (West Bengal) from the Eastern Grid,” said the chief engineer.
Further, he pointed out that power from all sources including internal generation of Likimro HEP was only to the tune of 50% against the requirement.
