Power Plant in Maharashtra's Aurangabad district produced 21.9 million units of electricity on Tuesday, over 40 per cent more than its target of 15.5 million units, a senior official said.
The Jayakwadi Dam on the Godavari River, which feeds the project, has been at 86 per cent water storage since August last year, allowing the project to work at full steam, he said.
"This year, water flow from Jayakwadi Dam was continuous. The allotted target of 15.5 million units was completed in the first week of November. Today is the last day of the financial year and we have generated 21.9 million units of electricity from Paithan," Aditional Executive Engineer Abasaheb Morale of Maharashtra State Power Generation Company told PTI.
