Energy generation for NEEPCO during 2010-11 has been 5,093 MU, as against the target of 5,426 MU, representing an achievement of 93.86%. This is, however, 12% higher than the energy generated last year.
During 2010-11 the actual hydro generation stood at 2,613 MU, as against the target of 2,926 MU. Another 2,480 MU was contributed by the thermal sector, which was about 1% lower than its target for the said period.
North Eastern Electric Power Corporation, a state-run power major, claims that the shortfall in energy generation has been primarily due to frequent power cuts and insufficient supply of gas to its power plants. Besides, lack of water had also forced the company to shut down Unit 3 of its Kopili Hydro Electric Project back in January 2011.
