The Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) has approved tariffs ranging between Rs 2.79 per kWh and Rs 2.83 per kWh for 480 MW of wind power projects (Tranche -VII) connected to the inter-state transmission system (ISTS). The tariffs were discovered in the competitive bidding process. The tender was issued by the Solar Energy Corporation of India Limited (SECI). For the trading margin of Rs 0.07 per kWh, the CERC directed SECI to have a mutual agreement with the two distribution licensees – Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) and Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation Limited (UPPCL). The capacities allocated to KSEB and UPPCL are 100 MW and 380 MW, respectively.
In January 2020, the CERC approved a tariff of Rs 2.44 per kWh adopted by the SECI to sell 600 MW of solar power allocated to ACME Solar to distribution licensees in Haryana and Bihar.
