To promote clean sources of energy, the Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission has decided to exempt all waste-to-energy projects from transmission and other related costs under open-access regulations.
Now, any open-access consumer wanting to buy from WTE plants will only have to pay for the cost of the power. All other infrastructure-related costs will be borne by discoms.
The move is expected to greatly benefit industrial and commercial consumers who can opt for power from these WTE plants as open-access consumers at a cost lower than commercial/industrial tariffs levied by DERC.
Currently, there are three WTE plants in the city — Okhla, Ghazipur and Bawana — while another in Okhla area is expected to become operational soon. Many other projects have been announced by the civic bodies. Read More
