The Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Corporation Limited (Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Corporation Limited) is an electrical power generation and distribution public sector undertaking that is owned by the Government of Tamil Nadu. It was formed on 1 November 2010 under section 131 of the Electricity Act of 2003, and is the successor to the erstwhile Tamil Nadu Electricity Board. The electricity board’s generation and distribution wings are its nucleus. TANGEDCO is a subsidiary of TNEB Limited.
To satisfy the energy needs of the state, Tamil Nadu Electricity Board has a total installed capacity of 10,214 MW which includes shares from the State government, Central government and Independent power producers. The state also has installations with renewable energy sources such as windfarms that supply up to 4,300 MW. Due to the astronomical increase in energy demand in recent years, the state has a power deficit which is estimated to be approx. 11.9% as of Feb 2009. To meet the ever-increasing energy demand, TNEB has proposed a number of next-generation projects to be constructed over the next 5 years.
The company operates four large thermal power stations:

Ennore Thermal Power Station (ETPS) – 450 MW
Mettur Thermal Power Station (MTPS) – 1440 MW
North Chennai Thermal Power Station (NCTPS) 1830 MW
Tuticorin Thermal Power Station (TTPS) – 1050 MW
TNEB has a consumer base of about 20 million consumers. 100% rural electrification has been achieved. The per capita consumption of Tamil Nadu is 1000 units. To achieve the goal of electrification of all households, the Government has launched the Rajiv Gandhi Grameen Vidyutikaran Yojana (RGGVY) scheme, where, if grid connectivity is not feasible or not cost effective, then “Decentralized Distributed Generation” is permitted.
