Haryana Power Generation Corporation Limited (HPGCL) is a utility unit of Haryana Power Utilities (HPU). Other than this, there is one more unit which is know as Haryana Vidyut Prasaran Nigam Limited (HVPNL). Haryana Power Generation corporation Limited (HPGCL) was established on 17 March 1997, pursuing which the State Electricity Board came into existence on 14 August 1998. In addition to that, 2 State-owned Utilities which we have just mentioned above were established. These units function independently in the field of generation, transmission and distribution of power.
HPGCL is in charge of operating and maintaining State’s own generation projects. The business of Generation of Power was transferred from HSEB to HPGCL that brought excellence in power generation in the State‘s own generating stations. HPGCL is also entrusted with the responsibility of setting up of new generating stations in order to keep pace with the ever –increasing demand of power.
It is a lesser known fact that Haryana State is one of the forerunners in the country to initiate reforms in its power sector. The Corporation constantly plans to add sufficient generating capacity in the State in order to bridge the gap between demand and supply units.
