MNRE asks states not to halt payments for renewable energy generators

The MNRE has asked states to continue buying power from renewable energy producers and clear their dues on a regular basis as was being done prior to the lockdown. On April 1, 2020, the MNRE wrote to all the states and electricity distribution companies after renewable energy producers complained that some states were curtailing purchase and payment for electricity generated from renewable energy sources. The MNRE has directed discoms to accept invoices and billing through emails and make payments to renewable energy generators as per their PPAs. Solar and wind electricity generating stations have been granted a place in the “essentials” list exempted from the lockdown, and they will be allowed to continue to function during the lockdown period.
