Since its constitution, power sector in Rajasthan received priority and power projects mushroomed all over the State.

- Jodhpur Vidyut Vitran Nigam Limited (JDVVNL)
8 MW Biomass based Power Plant has been constructed at Kishanganj in Baran District.Another power plant of NTPC is located in Anta. NTPC Anta is a natural gas-fired power station located in Baran district. The gas required for it is sourced from GAIL HBJ Pipeline - South Basin Gas field and the source of water is Chambal River.
However, most of the the villages in Baran district have to remain without electricity. For instance, Kelwada village and many nearby villages of Rajasthan are without proper roads and electricity supply. This makes it difficult for small scale industries to function efficiently.
