The 66-megawatt plant will cost more than Rs. 680 crore to construct. It will result in the production of more than 300 million kilowatt-hours of power per year.
PM Modi will preside over the second ground-breaking ceremony of the Himachal Pradesh Global Investors’ Meet at roughly 11:30 a.m., prior to the event.

“The Prime Minister has consistently emphasised the importance of fully using the country’s untapped resource potential. One step in this direction has been to make the most of the Himalayan region’s hydroelectric potential. The projects that will be inaugurated and for which the Prime Minister will lay the foundation stone during his visit are a significant step in this direction “It was also added.
