6.1 INTRODUCTION

No state or country is endowed with plenty of water sources or abundant coal and nuclear fuel. For minimum environmental pollution, thermal generation should be minimum. Hence, a mix of hydro and thermal-power generation is necessary. The states that have a large hydro-potential can supply excess hydro-power during periods of high water run-off to other states and can receive thermal ...
