Background

The Korba Thermal Power Station is owned and operated by the Chhattisgarh State Power Generation Company, a publicly owned generation utility formed in 2009 as a result of the restructuring of the Chhattisgarh State Electricity Board. Initially constructed in the 1960s, it added two 120 MW units in the 1970s and 1980s that are still operating.[1]

The previous four 50 MW units have been retired. In 2017 and 2018, operations at these units were suspended due to high production and maintenance costs, and environment hazards. In 2019, the state cabinet decided to permanently shut down the units.[2]
