Small Hydro Development Programme in Himachal Pradesh
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.
Projects to be offered for private sector participation
Projects up to 5.00 MW are handled by Himachal Pradesh Government Energy Development Agency (HIMURJA) in following modes.
- Projects Identified by HHIMURJA.
- Projects Identified by the interest private parties designated as self identified projects.
- Small Hydro Project up to 2.00 MW capacity shall be exclusively reserved for the Himachalis. Whereas while allotting projects upto 5.00 MW, Himachali shall be given extra 30 marks in addition to the marks obtained by them for financial strength.
- Not more than 3 projects shall be allotted for implementation to an IPP including the already allotted projects.
