A month ahead of the investors meet in UP, the state government on Monday offered yet another sop to industries by giving them the option to take power from the power distribution company of their choice.
The power will be wheeled to the industrial units under the ‘open access system’ for which the state government will set up a help desk at the UP state load dispatch centre (UPSLDC), said principal secretary (energy), Alok Kumar.
The permission to take power from a source other than the existing distribution company will be granted by the Uttar Pradesh power transmission corporation limited and the respective discom. Industries have been seeking power under the open access system but could not do so since the process for getting clearances was tedious.
