NTPCState run-power utility NTPC has commissioned the first units of 500 megawatts at its Mouda power plant in Maharashtra, of which around 150 mw would be supplied to the host state. The power from the plant would ease the power deficit in Maharashtra. The state, excluding the island city of Mumbai, sees demand in its area rising to 15,500 mw in summers as against 15,000 mw in non-summer months.

The first unit of Mouda Super Thermal Power Project, NTPC's first project in Maharashtra, attained full load of 500 mw on April 19, the power utility said in a statement.

The plant at Mouda is being set up with a total capacity of 2,320 mw. This includes the first phase of 1,000 mw (two units of 500 mw each) and the second phase of 1,320 mw (660 mw each). Second unit of 500 mw is slated to be commissioned in the current financial year.

Of the total generation at the plant, 30% would be supplied to Maharashtra, while the balance would be supplied to Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Goa, Daman and Diu, Dadra and Nagra Haveli.
