About Bhutan Power Corporation Limited Bhutan Power Corporation Limited was launched as a public utility on the 1st of July 2002 with the mandate of distributing electricity throughout the Country and also providing transmission access for generating stations for domestic supply as well as export. One of BPCs basic mandate was to not only ensure that electricity is available to all our citizens but to also make sure that it is reliable, adequate and above all within the means of all consumers. The erstwhile Department of Power under the Ministry of Trade and Industry was bifurcated into three separate entities namely Bhutan Power Corporation Limited a public utility, Department of Energy A government department responsible for policy, planning and coordination activities for the energy sector and Bhutan Electricity Authority Regulatory body under the Department of Energy.The reason why BPC was corporatised is many but the basic premise was to remove conflict of interest and reconcile commercial, social and policy objectives, and also to accept worldwide trend of restructuring that was happening in the power sector and accept the best practices.

business activity and by corporatization BPC has been able to bring this focus into its operations.
