Sabarigiri, the State’s second largest hydroelectric project storage, has increased manifold in June when compared to the same period last year.The catchment areas of the Sabarigiri project have been receiving good rainfall for the past one month, leading to a handsome inflow to the Kakki-Anathode twin reservoirs and to the Pampa reservoir.

The total inflow to the reservoirs on Sunday could generate 7.8 mu of power. However, KSEB regulated power generation at the Moozhiyar power house of the Sabarigiri project to 2.79 mu of power on Sunday to save hydel power for the lean period.

Mr. Rawther said KSEB reservoirs across the State received in June a total inflow that could generate 1,643 mu of power. The expected inflow was 740 mu. The combined power generating capacity of the State’s reservoirs is 4,140 mu.
