Power Generation

Energy has been universally recognized as one of the most important inputs for economic growth and human development. It has been recognized as one of the key drivers for rapid growth and poverty alleviation. The Installed power generation capacity of the State has increased from 315 MW in 1960-61 to 28277 MW in 2019-2020 (as on 31.03.20).The install capacity of GSECL is 7038.57 MW (as on 30.06.22) .The per capita energy consumption of power in the State of Gujarat in 2021-22 was at 2283.19 units

The Gujarat Electricity Board (GEB) came into existence on 1st May, 1960 at the time of separation of erstwhile Bombay State into two separate states – Gujarat and Maharashtra. The GEB until 2005 was responsible for generation, transmission and distribution of electrical energy in the state of Gujarat.

In support of Governments endeavour for bringing sense of responsibility and responsiveness to the public, the GEB was unbundled, wherein power generation responsibility was entrusted to Gujarat State Electricity Corporation Limited (GSECL).

With the modest capacity of 315 MW in 1960, GSECL now has 7056.71 MW power capacity comprising coal, gas, oil, lignite, hydro, Solar and wind power.

Per capita consumption of electrical energy in the state in 2021-22 was at 2283.19 units which is almost double of All India average.

In its endeavour for supporting Clean Climatic Initiatives, GSECL has always remained on fore-front. For sustainable ecology, gas is the most viable solution in the available scenario. GSECL has almost 970 MW of Gas Based Power generation capacity. In addition to Gas Based Power Plants, GSECL has installed wind farm and commissioned solar based Power Plant. GSECL has received approval for development of 2500 MW grid connected solar PV Project around existing substation of GETCO by acquiring Government Waste Land. Also GSECL is going to develop 3325 MW RE Park at Khavda (Dist. Kutch) Ultra Mega RE Park.

Enhancing existing available capacity for meeting with ever-growing need, the power stations are regularly maintained and up kept. Renovation and modernization of the old Power Stations, thereby ensuring their sustained operation at efficient levels is always on the agenda.

In order to ensure compliance with the environmental issues, follow-up actions for energy conservation through energy audit is done.

With its core strength and business acumen, GEB hitherto being a loss making company is now a profit making organization. The profit earned by the GSECL is continually being ploughed back for generation of additional capacity, thereby making Gujarat as the power surplus State. Though GSECL is making profit, the tariff of GSECL is much lower as compared to comparable Power Projects.

Capacity addition is a continuous process. Keeping this in view, GSECL has implemented / is implementing following projects:

As part of Clean-Green Energy program, GSECL has also initiated process- for installing solar panels on roof-top & on ground at identified locations within premises of TPS for squaring Auxiliary Consumption of particular TPS as Small Scale RE Projects. Details of Small Scale RE projects are as following:
