In February, The Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) affirmed a tariff of ₹2.60 /kWh adopted by the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) to sell 600 MW of solar power alloted to SB Energy Six Private Limited to distribution licensees in Bihar and Punjab. The Commission likewise asked the contracting parties to agree on the trading margin for long-term transactions commonly. Further, the Commission ordered NTPC to intimate the Commission before starting the bidding process in the future, which it had neglected to do in this case.
Previously, Haryana had issued an expression of interest for 279 MW of solar projects under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Urja Suraksha evam Utthaan Mahabhiyan (PM KUSUM) program that aims to solarize India’s agricultural sector. Under the Component A of KUSUM, solar power projects of capacities between 500 kW and 2 MW were to be developed by individual farmers, cooperatives, panchayats, farmer producer organizations (FPO) on barren lands falling within a 5 km radius of the 33/11 kV substations. The Uttar Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam Limited (UHBVN) and the Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam Limited (DHBVN) has now invited substation-wise expression of interest (EoI) from developers for setting up decentralized grid-connected ground or stilt-mounted solar power projects of capacity between 500 kW and 2 MW capacities. The solar power projects will be installed within a 5 km radius of the substation and the solar power generated will be purchased by DISCOMs at a pre-fixed levelized tariff of ₹3.11 /kWh determined by the Haryana Electricity Regulatory Commission (HERC).
