Druk Green Power Corporation Limited (DGPC) is an electricity utility company that operates and maintains hydropower assets of Bhutan. It was established in January 2008 through the merger of the three hydropower corporations of Basochhu, Chhukha and Kurichhu. Tala was merged with DGPC in 2009 and Mangdechhu and Embedded Generation in 2022.
With an installed capacity of 2,209 MW, the company’s mission is to efficiently manage existing hydropower plants and accelerate hydropower development in Bhutan by developing new hydropower projects.
As more projects were planned and developed and the electricity grid expanded to cover every nook and corner of the country, Bhutan embarked on restructuring the sector at the start of the 21st century through the adoption of a number of new policies and legislative interventions.
