State Electricity Regulatory Commissions

INVC,, Delhi,, The present renewable power generation capacity of 18,321 MW as on 31.10.2010 corresponds to a share of about 11% in the total installed capacity and 4.4% in the electricity mix. It is envisaged that total renewable power generation capacity will increase to about 72,400 MW by 2022, corresponding to a contribution of around 15.9% in the then likely total installed capacity of 4,55,000 MW, with about 6.4% contribution to the electricity mix. The Electricity Act 2003 and subsequent guidelines under National Tariff Policy 2006 have made it obligatory upon SERCs to specify minimum percentages for purchase of renewable power (Renewable Purchase Obligations) taking into account availability of the renewable energy resources in the region and impact on retail tariffs. The Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) has been mandated to regulate the electricity sector in line with the provisions of the Act/ exercise necessary powers to enforce the same.

I’d have to come to terms with you one this subject. Which is not something I usually do! I really like reading a post that will make people think. Also, thanks for allowing me to speak my mind!
