ISTS charges for solar and wind energy projects waived for projects commissioned before 2023

The Ministry of Power (MoP) has announced that interstate transmission system (ISTS) charges and losses on the transmission of electricity generated from solar and wind energy projects will be waived as long as they are commissioned before December 31, 2022. Earlier, the ministry had set the commissioning deadline for March 31, 2022. These charges would be waived for a period of 25 years, provided that the projects are supplying power to entities to meet their respective renewable purchase obligations (RPO). Further, these projects should be allocated to developers through a competitive bidding process.
