BPBD states that, as of early 2011, coal plants account for 45% or 2638 MW of the total output of both its own and independent producers plants. The board states that "in the Western Zone, Coal and imported liquid fuel is used for generation of electricity. The fuel cost per unit generation in the Western Zone is much higher than that of the Eastern Zone. Therefore, as a policy, low cost electricity generated in the Eastern Zone is transferred to the Western Zone through the 230 kV East-West Inter connector transmission line."
