Generation Expansion Plan




    Increase the Generation capacity from 2000 to 10000 MW

    • In compliance with prescribed reliability and system reserve criteria, an updated schedule for implementation of new generating plants and transmission additions is designed, to meet the projected demand.
    • To be a center of excellence in providing quality electirc service at every ones door and being competitive export industry.

    • The generation development plan consists mainly of hydro projects. Generation from Wind and Geothermal power plants are foreseen to compliment the hydro.
