Power Generation

The Company has set up its own zero-emission Hydro Electric and Wind Power Projects which contribute to meeting the increasing demand for clean energy as well as reduce our dependence on fossil-fuels.

Hydropower Generation is our core business area. The Company owns and operates a 9 MW Harangi Small Hydro-Electric Power Project in the district of Kodagu in Karnataka. The project has achieved 100 % availability factor each year since its commissioning in the year 1999. The Company acquired 7 MW Ullunkal Small Hydroelectric Power Project in the district of Pathanamthitta in Kerala which is fully operational now.

The company is augmenting its Power Generation capacities by a combination of organic growth, suitable acquisitions and allotments. The Company has targets to develop and own around 500 MW of new Hydro Electric Power Projects at an approximate capital outlay of Rs.7000-8000 crores in the next 5-7 years.

We are right on target and the Company presently has 291 MW of hydroelectric projects in its pipeline. 6 MW Harangi Extension Project is in advanced stage of construction and likely to be commissioned soon. In September, 2006 EDCL acquired 15 MW Karikkayam Project downstream of Ullunkal Hydroelectric Power Project, which is being implemented through Ayyappa Hydro Power Limited (AHPL), our 100% subsidiary Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) company.
