SMALL HYDRO DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME IN HIMACHAL PRADESH

 A) PRIVATE SECTOR PARTICIPATION

The State Government has taken several initiatives to encourage private sector participation in small hydro power development. Himachal Pradesh is among the few States, which has streamlined and is continuously refining the various procedures/processes to minimize the bottlenecks.

The process of exploitation of hydel potential in small hydro sector through private sector participation began during 1995-96. Since then, the allotment of project sites has been a continuous process. Till 30th November, 2011, 468 Small hydro Electric Projects (upto  5MW  capacity) with an aggregate capacity of 1176 MW have been allotted. Out of these 45 projects with an aggregate capacity of 177.55 MW have been commissioned. A goal of 500 MW through Small Hydel Projects by the end of 2014 has been fixed.
