He said the 210 MW and 250 MW power generating units of thermal station Panipat achieved a plant load factor (PLF) of 102.71 per cent. As per technical norms, the units had been designed with a margin of three per cent over the rated capacity.
Overall plant load factor of the power generating units at Panipat thermal plant was 91.09 per cent.

The contribution by the HPGCL generating units had helped in minimising state's dependence on other power supplying agencies.
It also helped in less over-drawls from the northern grid, for which the state had to pay a higher cost.
