Discoms gear up to meet RE obligations

After consistently failing in procuring power through renewable energy sources, distribution companies in the national capital have finally begun to meet their renewable power obligations (RPOs).

Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited (TPDDL) has signed a power purchase agreement with SunEdison, the world´s largest renewable energy development company to buy 180 megawatts (MW) of solar power. The move comes at a time when the Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC) has decided to penalise the discoms for defaulting in the annual targets towards RPOs.

The arrangement is projected to save 300,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year, equivalent to taking more than 54,000 cars off the road.
