UPERC floats new open access regulations

UPERC has issued its new open access regulations. As per the new UPERC (Terms and Conditions for Open Access) Regulations, 2019, open access will be allowed to consumers with contracted demand of more than 1 MW and connected with a substation of 11 kV or more. The commission has specified that in addition to transmission and wheeling charges, an open access consumer other than a captive consumer will have to pay a surcharge. Meanwhile, consumers availing of the interstate transmission system exclusively will also pay a cross-subsidy surcharge.
