Maharashtra: In the matter of Petition filed by MSEDCL for Passing on the cost of Renewable Energy Purchase to the Industries responsible for pollution and climate change

  • Economic Times, ET Bureau / Hyderabad
  • Created: Wed 30th OCT 2013

Maharashtra state electricity distribution company limited (MSEDCL) has requested the Hon€™ble MERe to  consider passing  on  the  cost due to renewable  energy  purchase  to  Industries  of  the state. As per MSEDCL, Industries in the state are responsible for pollution and climate change and  consequently  they  should  be  burdened  with  higher  purchase  cost of RE, not common consumers.
MSEDCL has provided the average cost of RE power purchase to be: Rs. 3.81 per unit, Rs 4.12 per  unit,  Rs 4.26  per  unit  &  Rs 4.32  per  unit  for  FY11 to  FY13  respectively.  Based  on  this MSEDCL has requested to segregate the RE power purchase from the ARR so that the overall tariff gets reduced, even-though, a  cursory  look  reveals  that  the  %age  in  such  increase  is declining on year to year basis (8.31% to 3.3 % to 1.41 % finally for FY13).
