The Tamil Nadu Electricity Regulatory Commission (TNERC) has directed Tangedco, the state utility, and the National Solar Federation of India to hold talks on May 5 and resolve the issue of back down of solar power.
Last year, the federation had moved the state regulator against the curtailment of solar power generation and issuing backing down (unplugging of solar power from the state grid) instructions.
Revenue takes a hit
In its petition, the New Delhi-based federation said that back downs hurt revenue and the financial viability of the solar power plant, adding that the issue is affecting the interest of investors in the State. Solar developers in Tamil Nadu and Rajasthan have been facing evacuation issues.
“Both parties are directed to have discussion on May 5, 2017 and resolve the issue of backing down of solar power amicably and submit the report to the Commission at the earliest. The case shall be taken up thereafter,” the TNERC said in its order.
Tamil Nadu is gearing up to procure 1,500 MW of solar power and the tariff is expected to fall below Rs. 4 per unit.
