SunEdison, Adani miss March 31 commissioning deadline in TN

Some projects of SunEdison and Adani Power, both of which are building solar projects in Tamil Nadu, have technically missed the March 31 deadline for commissioning. This is a big blow, as those projects would consequently be ineligible for the lucrative tariff of 7.01 a kWhr. SunEdison has confirmed that its 50 MW ´Kathiravan´ plant is stuck in the issue. The company was building 190 MW under the 7.01-a-unit feed-in tariff regime. SunEdison has completed and grid-tied 125 MW and could not complete another 15 MW. However, the 50-MW Kathiravan project was made ready for commissioning well before the deadline, but could not be connected to the sub-station due to delay in the State government giving certain approvals. SunEdison believes it is not at fault and intends to ¨approach the state electricity regulatory commission¨, if the project is made ineligible for the tariff. Apart from the 190-MW, SunEdison has another 25 MW of solar projects in the State, which includes rooftop plants.
