Telangana Government is looking at increasing its Hydel Power Capacity to meet the increasing power demand. Hydel Power is considered the cheapest power and the state government is planning to set up three more hydel power stations.
They will come up at newly-constructed multipurpose barrages at Medigadda, Tammidihatti and Tupakulagudem as part of Kaleshwaram irrigation project. After the state bifurcation, the government has commissioned two hydel power stations.
Lower Jurala hydro electric project of 6x40 MW was commissioned in October 2016 and in Pulichintala hydro electric project, out of the 4x30 MW units, one was commissioned in September 2016. The remaining three units are scheduled to be commissioned in 2017-18 fiscal
