MPERC dismisses review petition filed by RDM Care against biogas tariff order

  • Created: Thu 30th APR 2015

The Madhya Pradesh Electricity Regulatory Commission (MPERC) has dismissed the petition filed by RDM Care (India) Private Limited seeking a review of the commission’s tariff order for the procurement of power from biogas-based power projects in Madhya Pradesh.

RDM Carehas a 1.2 MW biogas-based power plant at Pariyat, which was commissioned on August 25, 2011. The company pleaded that the actual cost of the aforesaid project is Rs 102.30 million per MW (net subsidy and inclusive of infrastructure cost), which is much higher than the Rs 85 million per MW cost, which has been considered by MPERC in the tariff order.

In the order, the commission stated that it had issued a generic tariff order for procurement of power from various biogas-based power projects and that it would not be prudent to consider the actual cost of a specific project. Also, MPERC noted that the petitioner could not produce any new and important matter or evidence after due diligence for consideration by the commission. In addition, the petitioner could not establish any error apparent on the face of the record or any other sufficient reason on the basis of which the review of the tariff order could be considered.
