Consumers may get more time to meet solar purchase obligations in Tamil Nadu

According to reports, high tension and a section of low tension electricity consumers in the State are likely to get more time to meet solar purchase obligations (SPO).

As per the Tamil Nadu Solar Energy Policy 2012, the SPO prescribed for HT and LT commercial establishments is three per cent by December this year and six per cent from 2014.

For instance, by December, 3 % of energy of these categories of consumers should be solar power.The Tamil Nadu Electricity Consumers’ Association (TECA) went to the Appellate Tribunal for Electricity in June 2013, saying that consumers will not be able to meet the obligation of three per cent to six per cent as the State did not have the required solar energy capacity and that the obligation on open access customers who are already under Renewable Purchase Obligation fixed by the Regulatory Commission is not correct.
