ReNew Power, a wind and solar energy producer, has moved the Andhra Pradesh high court, objecting to the disconnection of a part of its capacity in the state. This follows its earlier petition questioning the government’s decision to renegotiate power purchase agreements.
In the fresh application filed earlier this week, ReNew protested against 300 MW of its wind projects being suddenly denied connectivity by the Andhra Pradesh Transmission Co. (APTRANSCO) at its Uravakonda substation. The first hearing on this application was held on Wednesday.
APTRANSCO chairman Srikant Nagulapalli said in a memo dated September 14 that “irregular connections and loads” were being removed after careful examination of the vigilance report. ET has reviewed a copy of the memo.
In addition, 100 MW of Greenko’s wind projects have been disconnected. APTRANSCO and ReNew did not respond to ET’s queries. A senior state government official claimed not to even be aware of the APTRANSCO memo. Read More
