Tamil Nadu would need 23 MW to meet solar RPO

According to reports, information gleaned from internal documents of Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Company (TANGEDCO) shows that the company would need 23 MW of solar power capacity to meet its solar-specific renewable purchase obligation.

The Tamil Nadu Electricity Regulatory Commission has fixed a solar RPO of 0.05 per cent for TANGEDCO, which means that 0.05 per cent of the electricity it supplies should come from solar energy — failing which it should buy solar renewable energy certificates from the market.

At the moment, there is no solar REC on offer and TANGEDCO is not likely to meet the obligation for 2011-12.
