The centerpiece of that strategy was the Chukha hydroelectric generation project which, with a capacity of 325MW, was the first major attempt to begin harnessing Bhutan's estimated 16,000MW of economically exploitable hydroelectric potential.
Chukha was commissioned in 1986 primarily for the export of power to India, but it also permitted a rapid increase in domestic electrification for both industrial and household use.
No boost to the economy on the scale of Chukha is expected until the 1020 MW Tala hydroelectric project is commissioned in the middle of the next decade.
