BBMB supplies power to partner states Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan and Himachal Pradesh at about 24 paise per unit. During first half of this year i.e. April-September-2011, BBMB achieved the highest power generation of the decade i.e. 7440 MU.
Ashok Thapar, Member Power BBMB said that though benevolent rains played a role in facilitating this feat, excellent upkeep of power houses, reservoir management and consistent management efforts to enhance worker's motivation contributed a lot to ensure this performance. BBMB expects additional generation of 1950 MUs during remaining 3 months .This amounts to giving a relief of about Rs.731 crore to the partner states taking a conservative energy purchase rate of Rs.3.75 per unit, said Thapar.
