India is the world’s third-largest consumer of electricity. Most of the electricity generation in India is through coal (fossil energy) and renewable energy. With such a thriving electricity sector, the inadequate transmission and distribution of electricity and rising costs of electricity bill payment have become a concern. At the same time, India is witnessing a surge in private electricity providers that are imbibing the latest technologies for prompt transmission and are also providing employment. In this article, we shall discuss the three major private electricity providers in India-
- Adani Power
Adani Power is an extension of Adani Group and is widely acknowledged as the most prominent private thermal power company in India. With a generation capacity of 12,450 MW, its thermal power plants are functional in Gujarat, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, and Chhattisgarh. A 40 MW solar power project is currently underway in Gujarat.
Adani Groups has also been committed to sustainable electricity generation and preserving biodiversity and ecosystems. Other projects under its sustainable development programme include community welfare, waste and water management, occupational welfare and emission management.
To make your online electricity bill payment, you can simply browse the official website of Adani Power or browse other websites like Airtel Payments Bank, Freecharge, Mobikwik or pay via apps like PayTM or Amazon Pay. They offer lucrative cashback, secure transactions and can be used for paying other bills too.
- TATA Power
TATA is a major player in different industries. Its chain of renewable and conventional electricity generation has a consumer base of around 12 million. TATA has installed its solar and wind energy power plants of a total of 1705 MW and 932 MW capacity respectively at Andhra Pradesh, Rajasthan, Punjab, Gujarat, Telangana, Bihar, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Madhya Pradesh. The company has been successful in establishing cost-efficient, state-of-art thermal and hydro plants to provide power at competitive tariffs.
If you are supplied power through TATA Power in either of the states, say, Madhya Pradesh, you can generate online prepaid coupons through TATA Power DDL’s website, download your receipt and adjust the mode of MP online electricity bill payment.
Jindal Steel and Power
Jindal Steel and Power Company produces power through backward integration through its captive coal mines. It has a 1000 MW coal-based thermal power plant in Chhattisgarh and the company has a total power generation capacity of 5049 MW. Some of its hydroelectric projects in Arunachal Pradesh are under construction. Thus, they will ensure uninterrupted power in the remote and rugged terrains of the state. Its global operations with respect to electricity generation expand to Africa. The company is also known for its CSR projects including setting up schools and issuing scholarships.
While these private conglomerates have led to a subtle revamp in power generation and distribution across the country, they have also done away with the necessity to make electricity bill payments in authorised offices. Rather, bill payments can be made online in a convenient and fast manner through websites like Airtel Payments Bank. Automatic bills, offers, making payments without having to create an account makes it a preferable option not only for paying bills by private providers but also state-owned providers like TNEB bill payment.
