The Pykara Hydro electric Power Station was constructed by Sir John G. Henry Howard , a British Engineer and the first Chief Electrical Engineer of the then Composite Madras State Electricity Department and commissioned in 1933 with an original installed capacity of 70 MW.

The Tamil Nadu Electricity Board was constituted with effect from 1st July 1957 under the Electricity Supply Act 1948 and came to be known as “The Madras StateElectricity Board” with Padmashri V.P. Appadurai appointed as Chief Engineer (Electricity).  The first thermal power plant was commissioned during 1971 at Ennore, Chennai with its first unit of 60 MW capacity.
