MSEDCL finally lays out policy to promote wind power

20th June 2014  To: 20th June 2014

NAGPUR: MSEDCL has formulated a policy in consultation with Mahatransco and Maharashtra Energy Development Agency (MEDA) to promote wind energy in the state. This is in response to the central government fixing a renewable energy purchase obligation (RPO) target for every power distribution company.

The rules provide that the share of wind energy increases every year, so MSEDCL will execute power purchase agreements (PPAs) with wind energy generators. The total capacity in MW will be decided by the state government and MSEDCL board considering the fulfilment of RPO. The PPAs will be signed with generators chronologically. The ones who commission their units will get preference.
