Performance of CHPs:

As on 31st March 2018, the Major CHPs handled 14.50 MT and Mini CHPs handled 2.50 MT of coal.

Major achievements during 2017-18:

  1. Average power factor of ECL for 2017-18 was 0.95. Net Gain from Power Factor Rebate has increased by 25.78%.
  2. Specific Consumption of Coal has been reduced by 7.31%.
  3. ECL has saved approximately Rs. 60.99 Crore during the year by switching over supply points from M/s IPCL to M/s WBSEDCL and availing the competitive tariff for the new as well as old consumer points.
  4. ECL is in the process to disconnect the existing domestic supply (fed through ECL line) to the households under Nituria Block, Sodepur Area. WBSEDCL is gradually replacing the existing supply network of ECL and re-connecting it simultaneously with their own supply network. ECL shall pay the monthly electricity bill as per the rules of the company only for those consumers, who are on role of company service and staying in company’s quarter. Till date, 691 nos connections have been provided by WBSEDCL and meter has been installed. By this means, unauthorized connection is being avoided as well as ECL is saving in electricity charges.
  5. The company is in the process of replacing the old and outdated steam winders by electrical winder. Work order has been issued for replacement of one such winder at Khas Kajora mine, Pit no-10 of Kajora Area, ECL and work is going on.
