Vision & Mission of Power Department
Ensuring availability of adequate, quality and reliable power and sustainability of power sector in
the State thereby contributing to accelerated development of the State.
– Creation of sufficient generation capacity through own generation assets and through
contractual generation capacities.
– Strengthening transmission capacity and transmission system by adding 12300 MVA
capacity with addition of 69 no. new substations and augmentation of 144 no. existing
substations during 12th Five Year Plan in view of load growth to evacuate and transmit
power in a reliable manner by ensuring grid discipline.
– To strengthen distribution system by adding 4435 MVA capacity with addition of 225 no.
new 33 kV substations and augmentation of 197 no. existing 33 kV substations during
12th Five Year Plan to meet the growing demands of consumers for reliable and adequate
power and to improve consumer service.

IT Initiatives in HPGCL
Implementation of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP):. Under ERP all Technical,
Financial & Commercial activities of HPGCL will be integrated. The implementation
of ERP will bring Standardization of processes, Transparency in organisation, realtime availability of data and better & quick decision making apart from reduction
in losses in power plant ultimately reduction in cost of generation. ERP enables
interaction with specialist for O & M of equipments.
Generation Control Centre (GCC): A centralized Generation Control Centre is
being set up at corporate office Panchkula which will be used to display real time
monitoring of power plant operational data through mimic diagrams and make
available requisite reports for monitoring of key operating parameters &
performance efficiency calculations for generating Units of HPGCL. The setting up
of GCC will also help us in finding the route cause analysis of trippings.
CCTV Surveillance System has been installed across all HPGCL Power Plant
control rooms in order to watch the real time activities for monitoring purpose.
