New Delhi: The National Solar Energy Federation of India (NSEFI) has written to the Uttar Pradesh government seeking extension of timeline to commission select solar power projects claiming that laxity by state agencies is to blame for the delay.
Earlier last month, Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation (UPPCL) had cancelled power purchase agreements (PPAs) with a few firms for delay in commissioning projects as per schedule.
“The projects of our members should be made eligible for extension of time as there was a default on the part of UPNEDA, UPTCCL and UPERC,” NSEFI said in a letter written to UP Energy Minister Shrikant Sharma.
According to NSEFI, the Uttar Pradesh government authorities caused delay in approval and permissions, which resulted in project delay beyond the control of solar power developers. Read more
