  • Economic Times, ET Bureau / Hyderabad
  • Created: Tue 19th JUL 2016

 

Objective of these regulations:

  • Enable integration of various smart grid technologies
  • Measures to bring about economy, efficiency improvement in generation, transmission and  distribution licensee operations
  • Manage the transmission and distribution networks effectively
  • Enhance Network Security
  • Integrate Renewable and Clean Energy into the grid and micro grids
  • Improving Consumers Services Levels

Key Points:

  1. Every transmission licensee, distribution licensee shall, constitute the SMART GRID CELL within 3 months of notification of these regulations.
  2. The transmission licensee, distribution licensee shall submit an integrated Multi-Year smart grid plan for their respective license areas along with Multi-Year Tariff Petition or ARR Petition.
  3. The Commission may provide incentives/dis-incentive mechanism for the transmission and distribution licensee to encourage the participation in the Smart Grid Program.

  5. The transmission and distribution licensee shall submit a detailed project report to the commission after completion of such projects and shall place the same, in the public domain through its website(s)

Introduction of Tariff Design by the Licensee:

The tariff design so filed in the ARR by the respective licensee may include the following:

 

  • CRITICAL Peak Pricing: High costs of supply are usually observed for a few days during a year, directly connected with extreme low or high temperatures. CPP charges consumers significantly high prices under predetermined trigger conditions for these days. This type of rate is thus an additive one and can be combined with any other (usually TOU) tariff.

 

  • Real Time Pricing Tariff: In the day-ahead RTP tariff, consumers are informed 24 hours in advance about the estimated prices so they are able to plan their next day electricity usage

 

NOTE:

Clause (8) Sub Clause (5): The Commission may modify the proposal as deemed fit in order to ensure its consistency with overall objectives.
