Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao recently laid the foundation stone for the Manuguru thermal power plant in Khammam district .

The Bhadradri thermal power plant, with a 1,080-MW capacity, is developed by TS Genco in partnership with BHEL, its EPC contractor, and finance from Rural Electrification Corporation and Power Finance Corporation.

The Chief Minister said the plant will be developed on a fast track mode and hoped the State would become a power surplus State within next three years.

He said REC and PFC committed an investment of ₹40,000 crore for development of TS Genco projects. The Chief Minister said Telangana will have an installed capacity of about 24,000 MW by 2018-19, including various thermal, hydel power projects and renewable energy projects including solar PV units, making it a power-surplus State, and thus an ideal investment destination for industries.
