Combined installed capacity 3920 MW; generation to begin from April next year
Punjab’s dream of becoming self-sufficient in power would become a reality, when three major thermal plants in the private sector, with a combined installed capacity of 3920 MW, start operating and begin generation from April 2013. This was disclosed by Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal on Wednesday after he visited the sites of these power projects that were at advanced stages of completion at Goindwal Sahib, Talwandi Sabo and Rajpura in Tarn Taran, Bathinda and Patiala districts respectively. He said the facilities entailed an investment of Rs. 22,000 crore.
