KERC revises tariff for India Powers wind power plants

The Karnataka Electricity Regulatory Commission (KERC) has upheld several separate petitions by India Power Corporation Limited seeking project-specific tariff from the eleventh year of the commercial operation date (CoD) of its projects. The commission has noted that reduction in the achievement of the assumed plant load factor is substantial, which makes a case for the determination of project-specific tariff.

The commission has revised the levellised tariff from the eleventh year of the CoD of the projects at Rs 2.32 per unit for a 2.4 MW wind plant (OP No.3/2016), Rs 2.34 per unit for a 3.2 MW wind plant (OP No.4/2016) and Rs 2.26 per unit for a 4.8 MW wind plant (OP No.5/2016). Further, the commission has noted that tariff determined in the present order is much below the tariff of Rs 3.40 per unit determined in the generic tariff order dated December 11, 2009 for the existing wind power projects.
