Installed Capacity


To satisfy the energy needs of the State,  Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Corporation Limited has an installed capacity of  18732.78 MW which includes TANGEDCO owned State projects, share from the  Central Generating Stations(CGS) and Private Power Purchase.

           Other than this, the State has  installations in renewable energy sources like wind mill, solar, biomass and cogeneration up to 10,479.61  MW.        

     Future projects

                       To meet the ever-increasing energy  demand in the coming years, TANGEDCO has proposed new generation for the next 5 years. TANGEDCO has fully exploited the hydroelectric potential available in the state. However, to balance the excess power available during off peak hours and to tide over the peak hour shortage, a Pumped storage scheme in  Kundah for 500 MW has been proposed.

       Enviornment Concern  

                 TANGEDCO has also proposed to establish small hydroelectric projects of  capacity less than 25 MW   in  the run of river scheme with total  capacity of 110 MW. 


Power generation, especially coal based power plants are prone to  have an adverse impact on the   environment. Presently TANGEDCO has four major coal based Thermal Power Stations with a total capacity of 4060 MW and four gas based power plants with a total capacity of 516 MW. TANGEDCO recognizes its social obligation and is conscious of the importance of prevention of degradation of the environment due to its  Thermal Stations      More..
