Upper Indravati Hydro Electric Project has gone completely activity with the dispatching of Unit No.IV of the 600 MW (150 x 4) Hydro Power Project.

Moreover, Indravati gives one of the least expensive and most climate accommodating power among the current age of force projects for example 64.96 paise per KWH. However project work began way back in 1978, it picked up speed solely after OHPC dominated. While the initial two units of the hydro project were charged in 1999, the third unit and fourth went functional during the year 2000 and 2001.
