Power trading solutions provider PTC India would ink medium-term power purchase pacts for 1,900 MW coal-based power capacities in the next one month under a pilot scheme launched earlier this year, an official said. The power purchase agreements (PPA) would help revive stressed commissioned power plants that do not have such pacts. PPAs are required for getting fuel supplies.
“PTC India has finalised bids of 1,900 MW capacities at a tariff of Rs 4.24 per unit including the nominal fixed cost of one paise per unit for supply of power for the medium term of three years. The power purchase agreement for these capacities would be inked in a month’s time ahead of festival season,” a power ministry official told on the condition of anonymity.
The official said, “There would be no escalation of tariff during the three-year period on any account. The discoms can reduce load up to 55 per cent of agreed capacity.” Read More
