Mizoram has a potential of generating 4,000 MWhydroelectricity

While Mizoram has apotential of generating 4,000 MW of hydroelectricity, the state currently generates about 10 MW of electricity, which is far below the state’s requirement..

Mizoramat present consumes 144 MWpower per day, and most of its requirements are met with power purchased from outside the state. The state governments could not take up major hydroelectricity projects due to financial constraints.Two mini-hydel projects that will generate 24 MW power are in the pipeline.The state is also exploring the possibility of roping in central public sector units (CPSUs) for hydel projects on river Tuivai (210 MW) and Mat-Sekawi (76 MW).
