Bihar's power capacity to up by 1,000 mw per year

In the next five years, the Bihar government will annually extend its capacity by 1,000 mw. The State government has also aimed to make Bihar a power surplus state within 5 years.

Bihar Power Minister Vijayendra Yadav on December 5 told the State Assembly that the government has already promised that it will improve the power situation by 2015. For this, the government has laid out a very extensive strategy. The state government’s power plants at Muzaffarpur and Barauni will be renovated and ready for use by the end of next year.

From these units, the State will get 440 mw. The extension of these power plants is also underway, which will be finished by 2014 (Muzaffarpur) and 2015 (Barauni). It will increase our capacity by another 900 mw. Then, Barh NTPC will also begin generation, from where the State is scheduled to get almost 1,200 mw, he added.
