During a visit to the construction site of Dasu Dam, the prime minister expressed satisfaction over the pace of ongoing work and lauded efforts towards completion of project. He said completion of Dasu Dam would ensure cheap and clean electricity and would ease the burden on consumers, while ushering in a new era of socio-economic development in the country.

Phase I of Dasu Dam will complete in 2025 when it will start supplying 2160MW to the national grid. After completion of Phase II in 2029, the capacity of the dam will be increased to 4320MW.
