Small Hydro Programme in Uttarakhand

The energy-development relationship has numerous social and political implications in Uttarakhand, where about 63.10% of the population lives in rural areas and most of them belong below the poverty line.

Geographical conditions of the state differ at a short distance. Most of the area is hilly and forest coverage is about 66%. Villages are in scattered manner and household coverage in a village is short. In this situation, either it is not possible to laid grid lines due to forest laws or due to high cost of coverage. Operation and maintenance is also an issue in this pattern. As a solution of this problem- Decentralized Distributed Generation (DDG) Micro & Mini Hydro Projects are suitable and best way to provide electricity facility to the forest fringe and scattered villages. Operation and maintenance of Standalone MHPs can be done in easy manner by local community after a formal training.

In the State of Uttarakhand, Uttarakhand Renewable Energy Development Agency (UREDA) is constructing MHPs for remote village electrification as well as for grid feeding. So far 44 MHPs of composit capacity 4.29 MW have been commissioned and more than 300 Villages & Hamlets have been electrified through these projects. Earlier the projects were constructing on turn-key basis but from year 2005, Govt. of Uttarakhand has decided to construct MHPs for village electrification on community participation. For construction of MHPs, tripartite Agreements have been signed between UREDA, Alternate Hydro Energy Center (AHEC), IIT, Roorkee and Concern User Energy Committee (UEC). As per tripartite Agreement AHEC, IIT, Roorkee is providing technical specialized services for construction of MHPs, preparation of DPR etc. and UREDA is providing its services for monitoring, funding and guidance to UECs.

MHPs are being constructed with the financial support from Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), Govt. of India. The financial support from MNRE is available as per the relevant guidelines of MNRE.

UREDA has commissioned large number of MHPs in the remote area of state where the National or state grid cannot be extended. 44 MHPs of total capacity 4.29 MW has been installed in the remote villages of Uttarakhand till date and another 19 MHPs of total capacity 2.315 MW are under implementation.
