Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Corporation Limited(TANGEDCO) plans todouble the power production in the state by 2030 as well as upgrade the distribution system for an uninterrupted power supply.

Currently, the power production in the state is 33,877 MW,which is set to reach to 77,153 MW by 2030.The state was also buying power through medium and short-term open assess arrangements for an uninterrupted power supply despite the operational issues.
