The Right bank power house is located at the foot of the dam. The gross head available at the dam power house for power generation varies from 13 to 26.8 meter. The main objective of the project being irrigation, electricity generation is dependent on the water releases made for irrigation in the RBLLC and river assistance to the RDS and the KC canal. During rainy season especially when the reservoir is nearing full reservoir level or is overflowing, generation at full capacity of 36 MW is done at the dam power house drawing water at the rate of 160.27 cumec with maximum differential head of 26.8 meter.
