If PM Modi Has His Way, This 112 Year Old Kashmir Power Project Will Get New Avatar

The 112 years old Mohra hydroelectric project in the state of Jammu and Kashmir can be revived as a heritage project by the J&K State Power Development Corporation (JKSPDC) soon. Constructed back in 1905, this project was the state’s first hydroelectric project and it is now on the radar of the J&K government. With an initial installed capacity of 4 megawatts (MW), the Mohra hydroelectric project was constructed as a run-of-river scheme, according to Indian Express. The JKSPDC is now aiming to revive the project with an increased power generation capacity of 9 MW for a functional restoration of the old powerhouse.
