CLP India is a subsidiary of CLP Holdings, a company founded as China Light and Power Company Limited in Hong Kong. On its website the company states that the "CLP Group started its India innings by acquiring a stake in the 655 MW gas powered Gujarat Paguthan Energy Corporation (GPEC) in Bharuch, Gujarat in 2002. Since then, CLP India's portfolio has expanded to about 2,614 MW which include around 640MW of wind energy projects and a 1,320 MW coal fired power plant in Jhajjar, Haryana."
The Jhajjar power station is a 1,320 MW (2 x 660 MW) supercritical coal-fired power station located at Village Khanpur, Dist. Jhajjar, Haryana. According to a June 2012 report in Bloomberg Businessweek, the plant was completed in April 2012 but is "dead cold" due to lack of coal supplies. "Eighty-five per cent of it capacity is contracted for supply to the Haryana DISCOMs (UHBVNL and DHBVNL) and the remaining available capacity will be sold outside the state of Haryana to Tata Power," CLP states. The plant proposes to use domestic coal.
