Uninterrupted Power Supply

"State Government has embarked on an ambitious plan to add substantial electricity generating capacity in the next few years. It is targeting to achieve a total generating capacity of 1330 MW by 2016-17, 3310 MW by 2017-18 and 7270 MW by 2021-22. In order to turn its vision into reality, Bihar State Power Generation Corporation Limited (BSPGCL) has entered into joint ventures with reputed companies in the power sector, like National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) and National Hydro Power Corporation (NHPC). Some of the major power sector projects, at different stages of commissioning, are Nabinagar Stage-1 Plant, power projects in Buxar, Bhagalpur, Lakhisarai and Banka. On completion of all these projects, Bihar‘s dependence on the centre for its power requirements will reduce significantly and the state would become self-sufficient in meeting its power requirements.
