Capacity Addition Plan


Present installed capacity of THDCIL is 1587 MW having three hydro, two wind and one solar power plant. THDCIL envisaged to add 2764 MW upto 2026-27 with anticipated commissioning of its three under construction power projects namely Tehri PSP (4x250 MW), Vishnugad Pipalkoti HEP (4x111 MW) and Khurja STPP (2x660 MW). The installed capacity of THDCIL is envisaged to be 4351 MW during the year 2026-27.
THDCIL is developing 2000 MW Ultra Mega Solar Power Parks in U.P through TUSCO Ltd. Accordingly, 600 MW Solar Power Park each in Distt Jhansi & Distt. Lalitpur and 800 MW Solar Park in Distt Chitrakoot are being developed.
Further, THDCIL is developing 10,000 MW Ultra Mega Renewable Energy Parks in the Rajasthan state through JV Co. TREDCO Rajasthan Ltd.
THDCIL is also in process of implementing a Pilot Project for Carbon capture at Khurja STPP (2x660MW) with a newly emerging cost-effective Carbon capture technology. Based on outcome of this pilot project, the capacity shall be scaled up which shall help in removing majority of carbon-based emission (CO2, etc) from exhaust gases.
Also, 11 MW Floating Solar Power plant on raw water reservoir in Khurja STPP is under implementation
THDCIL has signed MoUs with Karnataka Power Corporation Limited (KPCL) and Karnataka Renewable Energy Development Limited (KREDL) in Nov’2023 for a diverse range of renewable energy projects totaling to 3270 MW including various Ground mounted, Roof top and Floating Solar PV Plant, PSP, Hybrid. THDCIL has initiated the process of PFR/ DPR preparation and land identification for solar/ floating solar plants development.
Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) for the implementation of the 1200 MW Kalai-II Hydro Electric Project in the Anjaw District of Arunachal Pradesh was signed between GoAR (Govt. of Arunachal Pradesh) and THDCIL in Dec’2023. Other Hydro Projects in Arunachal Pradesh with cumulative capacity of 5455.50 MW are being pursued for allotment.
Govt. of Uttarakhand has granted the responsibility for the development of 05 Hydro Electric projects with a total capacity 1719 MW in Uttarakhand to ‘TUECO Limited’ (A JV Company between THDCIL and ‘Uttarakhand Jal Vidyut Nigam Limited’) during Energy Conclave-2023 in Dec’2023.
Ministry of Power, GOI has accorded its 'In-principle' approval in Jan’2024, to form a JV with Karnataka Power Corporation Limited (KPCL) for implementation of Godhna TPP (2x800 MW) along with development of dedicated coal mines provided the administrative control of the JV remains with THDCIL. Subsequently, THDCIL is in process of formation of JV with KPCL.
THDCIL is also exploring Potential Floating Solar Power capacities in Uttarakhand, Chhattisgarh, Kerala, Maharashtra and Karnataka.
THDCIL endeavors to undertake projects and participate in Govt. of India’s National Hydrogen Mission. Accordingly, a pilot project of ‘Green Hydrogen’ with 1 MW capacity (Electrolyser & Fuel-cell based micro-grid system) has been commissioned at THDCIL Office Complex, Rishikesh (Uttarakhand).
THDCIL is also exploring possibilities of development of Hydro Electric, Pumped Storage and Renewable Energy Schemes in various parts of the country as well as neighbouring Countries
