He said that the new power generation record was higher than the 1,542 million units (MU) set in July 1988.
"This all-time high generation is 38 percent more than Central Electricity Authority of India's targeted value for July," the spokesman said.
The BBMB manages the 225-metre-high Bhakra Dam and other hydroelectric projects in Himachal Pradesh and Punjab.
The spokesman said greater power generation also led to the benefit of flood threat being moderated.
