Arunachal district creates record in hydro sector

February 2012
The remote Anjaw district of Arunachal Pradesh is marching ahead to notch a record in the hydropower sector and is being hailed as the future powerhouse of the country with a potential of 58,000 MW hydropower. The 2x100 kW Yapak, 2x50 kW Khrowtipani, 2x250 kW Matinala and 2x250 kW Teepani projects were commissioned recently and rendered the border district self-sufficient in power.

At the moment, Hawai, Hayuliang, Goiliang, Manchal, Walong, Kibithoo and Metengliang administrative centres and adjoining villages are getting 24-hour uninterrupted power supply.
