There are about 110 Sugar factories in the state. The total cane crushing capacity of these existing sugar mills in the state is about 3,00,000 tons per day. The bagasse yield is about 50,000 tonnes per day. This bagasse can support at least 2000 MW of power generation capacity using ordinary medium pressure boilers and turbo generators. If high pressure boilers and turbo generators are used, the installed power generation capacity in sugar factories could go up to 3000 MW or even more. But as things stand today, using medium pressure boilers and turbo generators only, sugar factories in the state can generate 1800 MW of power.

Till 30.04.2019 the state Government has accorded permission to 85 new and old Sugar factories to establish cogeneration plants of 2177.65 MW capacity capable of exporting 600 MW to the state electricity grid. Totally 72 sugar factories and one paper mill have commissioned cogeneration plants of capacity 1731.16 MW.
