Chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat inaugurated the state’s first small hydroelectric project on Kali Ganga river in Rudraprayag district on Thursday. Kali Ganga is the first small hydro power project located on Kalimath Kotma Marg in Ukhimath development block of Rudraprayag district.
After the 2013 floods, the construction was damaged. But given the importance of the project for the remote region, the construction work started again in the 2016.
Located in a remote area, the construction work faced many hurdles. The project eventually was able to achieve success after it synchronized to a 33kv distribution line in July 2020.
