The capacity will be increased from 1,000 MW to 1,091 MW in a phased manner i.e. 1,000 MW to 1,045 MW in Phase-I for two monsoon seasons in CY 2021 and CY 2022, and to 1,091 MW thereafter.

This capacity uprating has been done by nine percent to 1,091 MW without any additional capital expenditure, and is a significant boost to the earnings potential of this key asset of JSW Energy
