The State of Maharashtra is on number one position for the installed capacity of power utilities. Presently the State has 22645 MW of installed capacity from all power generation sources (Conventional and Renewable). As per the latest data by CEA (March 2011), Maharashtra has an installed capacity of 15813.98 MW from thermal, 690.14 MW from Nuclear, 3331.84 from Hydro and 2809.33 from other renewable energy sources. Maharashtra State Electricity board (MSEB) was the solo organization looking after electricity operations in the state before the year 2005.  Due to operational issues of over sizing of the MSEB, it has been restructured into four daughter organizations. These four companies came into  existence in July 06, 2005 – MSEB Holding Company, Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company (Mahavitaran), Maharashtra State Electricity Transmission Company (Mahapareshan) and Maharashtra State Electricity Generation Company (Mahagenco) after unbundling the MSEB.
