The Karnataka Electricity Regulatory Commission (KERC) has dismissed the petition filed by EID Parry (India) Limited under Section 86(1) (f) of the Electricity Act, 2003, against Hubli Electricity Supply Company Limited (HESCOM) and Karnataka State Load Despatch Centre (SLDC in a billing dispute.

 EDI Parry operates a 24 MW co-generation power plant in Uttara Kannada district, of which 20.86 MW is exportable capacity. The PPA for the project was signed with HESCOM in January 2007.

 The petitioner had requested a direction against both the respondents to make payment as per market rates at the India Energy Exchange, instead of the PPA rates, for the energy supplied between July 2009 and May 2011, excluding the months of May 2010 and June 2010, which amounts to Rs 115.80 million. The petition was rejected as EDI Parry failed to produce any relevant material in support of its claim for a higher rate, and therefore the petition was dismissed.
