Toss Mini Hydel Power Project has been commissioned in December 2008 and ever since it is generating excellent power. Last year it has achieved generation of about 65 Million Units. The electricity is being evacuated in the state grid through 33 KV feeder lines. The project has achieved the following objectives:-
Good quantity of power generated and supplied to HPSEB.
Reduction in emission of green house gases & thus reduction in global warming.
Preservation of biological diversity & Ozone layer.
