Electricity is an essential source of commercial energy. It is vital for sustained economic growth. An increase in demand for power implies growth of the economy leading to modernization, industrialization and improvement in basic amenities culminating into a better quality of life of people. The state of Jammu and Kashmir is endowed with significant hydel potential which, when exploited fully, will provide a strong impetus for the growth of its economy. Development of this potential would need huge resources, technical expertise, administrative reforms, congenial environment, proper regulation and management, besides competitive marketing, policy formation and private participation. Optimal exploitation of available hydel resources in the State would not only meet the internal demand but will also supply power to the Northern grid to boost the overall development of the State. The estimated hydro power potential of the state is 20,000 Megawatts (MW), of which about 16475 MW have been identified. This comprises 11283 MW in Chenab basin, 3084 MW in Jhelum basin 500 MW in Ravi Basin & 1608 MW in Indus basin. Out of the identified potential, only 3263.46 MW i.e. 19.80 % (of identified potential) has been exploited so far, consisting of 1211.96 MW in State Sector from 21 power projects, 2009 MW in Central Sector from 7 projects and 42.5 MW in private sector from 4 projects

During past five decades considerable work has been done in Power Sector within the limitations imposed by the resources and other constraints. The installed capacity in the State, thermal as well as Hydel, is 1419.96 MW (208 MW Thermal + 1211.96 MW Hydel). The prestigious Baglihar Hydro Electric Project, stage I & II with a capacity of 450x2 MW. During 2008-09, 2009-10, 2010-11, 2011-12, 2012-13, 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16 The Stage-I was commissioned during 2008-09 and Stage-II was commissioned in 2015-16.. During 10thfive year plan, no additions have been made to power generation but in the 2nd year of 11th Five year plan Baglihar- I with capacity of 450.00 MW was added to the State Power Generation. During 11th Plan 1.26 MW of Sanjak MHP has been added besides augmentation of Bhaderwah MHP by 0.5 MW. During 12th FY 1.5 MW has been added by augmentation of Pahalgam MHP in 2013 and 450 MW of BHEP-II has been added in 2015-16. Thus the aggregate capacity of 1211.96 MW Hydel power in the State Sector is available to the State, which is helping the State to overcome the power scarcity to some extent.
