Haryana has continuously progressed in the power sector since its formation. While the availability of electricity at that time was only 343 MW, today it has increased to 13106.58 MW. Thus, Haryana has become self-sufficient in terms of power availability in the state in the last 8 years under the efficient leadership of Chief Minister Manohar Lal. The target was also met when the power demand reached 12768 MW during peak hours in the months of May-June. Even when the power crisis deepened in the whole of northern India, the availability of electricity in Haryana remained as expected. This became possible due to the power reforms carried out by the power corporations and the Haryana Electricity Regulatory Commission (HERC).


When Haryana was separated from Punjab in 1966 as a separate province, at that time Haryana had an acute shortage of resources. It was a big challenge before the then governments to provide basic facilities like roads, electricity, water to the public. But in 1970, electricity was brought to every village. Chief Minister Manohar Lal himself says that all the previous governments have contributed in this work in the development of the state. But the work done in the last 8 years is overshadowing the work done in the last 48 years. In the field of power reforms, Haryana has taken a giant leap in these 8 years. The state has not only become self-sufficient in the field of availability of electricity, but for the first time all the four power distribution companies have become profitable.

Haryana Power Generation Corporation produces a total of 2582.40 MW power, out of which 710 MW power from Panipat Thermal Plant, 1200 MW from Rajiv Gandhi Thermal Plant Khedar, Deenbandhu Chhoturam Thermal Plant, 600 MW from Yamunanagar, 62.4 MW hydro from Western Yamuna Canal. And the Panipat Power Project produces 10 MW of solar power. In 1966, where there were 20 thousand 190 tubewells used for agriculture in Haryana, which has now increased to 6 lakh 64 thousand 882 in 2022. In 1966, there were only 9749 industrial area electricity connections in Haryana, which have now increased to 1 lakh 18 thousand 801 in 2022. In the year 1966, the per capita consumption of electricity was 48 units, which has now increased to about 1805 units. Today the number of electricity consumers has increased to 73 lakh 82 thousand 836.

Keeping in view the guidelines of the National Green Tribunal (NGT), the Chief Minister has given green signal to the proposal to set up another 900 MW power plant at Yamuna Nagar outside NCR and soon its site selection and DPR will be approved. The Chief Minister believes that electricity is supplied on the demand of the consumers, the way a customer takes the goods from the shop and pays. Similarly, consumers have to pay for electricity also, a practice of not paying the electricity bill was going on in the state, the lie of which was broken by the Chief Minister in the year 2016 in village Badhda, where he spread his bag and appealed to the people to pay the electricity bill. And after that Mhara Gaon-Jagmag Gaon Yojana was started, under which now 5681 i.e. 84 percent villages of the state are being given 24 hours electricity, whereas in October, 2014 only 538 villages were given 24 hours electricity. Was staying In October 2014, the recovery of electricity bills from rural areas was less than 50 percent, which has now increased to more than 90 percent. In this way, today Haryana has not only become self-sufficient in power generation, but is also at the top position in the country in electricity-powered industries and other basic facilities.
