Three captive coal mine blocks, namely the Moher, Moher Amlori extension, and Chhatrasal, have been allocated for the power producing facility.

Power generated at the facility will be sold at a uniform tariff of Rs1.196/kwh to 14 Indian distribution companies from seven states including Madhya Pradesh, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttarakhand.

Coal production has already been initiated at the 20MTPA Moher and Moher-Amlohri mines.

The fully operational project raises Reliance Power’s capacity to 5,945MW, out of which 185MW is generated from renewable resources and 5,760MW account for its thermal capacity.
