Power

 
Himachal is extremely rich in hydel resources. The state has about 25% of the national potential in this respect. It has been estimated that about 20,300MW of hydel power can be generated in the State by constructing various major, medium, small and mini/micro hydel projects on the five river basins. The state government has been giving the highest priority for its development, as hydel generation can not only meet the growing need of power for industry, agriculture and rural electrification, but can also be the biggest source of income to the state by way of sale of electricity to the neighbouring states.

The most prestigious and major project on river Sutlej in the state is the Nathpa Jhakri (1500M.W). It is constructed in collaboration with the central government. The project is funded by the World Bank.

The foundation stones were laid of 300MW Chamera II Hydel Project in June 1999, of 2051 MW Parbati Hydel Power Project in December 1999, and of 800 MW Kol Dam project in June 2000. Other major ongoing projects are : Bhaba Augmentation Scheme, Ghanvi Hydro Electric Project (22.5 MW), Larji Hydel Project (126MW) and Khauli Hydro Electric Project (12MW). The state government has given eight hydel projects for private sector participation. These are Baspa Hydro Electric Project (300MW), Holi Hydro Electric Project (231 MW), Dhamwari Sunda Hydro Electric Project (70MW), Project (15MW), Allian Duhangan Hydro Electric Project (192 MW), Swara-Kuddu (162MW) and Budhil (70MW). 

The state has electrified each one of its 16,807 inhabited villages. It is very impressive, looking at the location of its villages in far off areas and their isolation.

The water resources also provide valuable food in the shape of fish. A national fish seed farm and fish farmers development agencies have been set up. A pilot project is being set up with Norwegian assistance for commercial trout farming in Kulu valley.
