Hydro Power Projects of MANIREDA

Introduction:

Despite being endowed with rich Hydro power potential, Manipur has been facing power crisis for a long time. In order to solve the need of power, the rich hydel resources are required to be tapped in a systematic way. Small/Mini/Micro Hydro is attractive because it is a renewable energy sources that can never be exhausted which also avoids the pollution associated with burning fuels. Small/Mini/Micro hydro power is generally run off river and therefore avoids construction of large dams/reservoirs.
