The government has also decided that intergovernmental transport and loss charges (ISTS) will also be abolished for the sale of renewable energy by the governments of the federal states, which have installed renewable energy capacity more than the central government-imposed RPO limit. However, developers claim that the cost of capital has fallen significantly in recent years and that the recent decline in purchase prices does not reflect what they were for older projects. A memo filed by Andhra Pradesh Southern Power Distribution Company Limited on July 27 indicated that, given the financial situation, AP DISCOMS had decided to withdraw from its PPAs with Suzlon and Axis Energy customers and their customers. “… Since the AAEs have not yet been approved, this is not applicable and the SPGPDCL is free to withdraw the same thing and therefore seeks permission to withdraw the 21 nos. The PPAs have welcomed clients from M/s Suzlon and M/s Axis Energy Ventures India Private Limited through various wind projects,” the statement said. July 27: Andhra Power Regulator says the state-run provider has withdrawn applications for 21 PPP approvals. The sign of acquiescence of the panel is a necessary step after signing an AAE. The unsoverability of AAEs took the top spot in the context of the Andhra Pradesh government`s controversial attempts to revise tariffs to 2.43%, 2.44%, respectively, for wind turbines and solar panels and retroactively with developers of about 140 power plants. The Supreme Court of Andhra Pradesh has granted interim measures and the case is 000 before the AP State ERC. Greenko has a net installed capacity of 4.7 GWdc in 15 countries, ReNew is the largest independent producer of electricity for renewable energy, which, according to its own claim, has a capacity of 7 GW and Mytrah manages 1000 MW of wind turbines and solar installations. Of the 3,494 MW of wind power generation, about 63% of wind capacity is linked to three developers. The Andhra Pradesh Electricity Regulatory Commission (APERC) has authorised the implementation of a modified electricity purchase contract (PPA) between Ramagiri Renewable Energy Limited (RREL) and Transmission Corporation of Andhra Pradesh (APTRANSCO).
October 15: The Supreme Court upholds the central government`s decision to prevent Andhra Pradesh from buying electricity from the electricity exchange instead of wind farms with which it had signed PPAs. “Under the guise of complying with renewable energy purchase obligations (RPPs), which require renewable energy consumption of 5 to 11%, AP has purchased about 23 percent of high-cost renewable energy, which weighs heavily on public finances,” he said. Shortly after the GO was issued on July 1, the government issued a new order to Jagan. “Cancel all contracts to purchase wind, hybrid and experimental power in preparation — unsigned or not approved by the AP Electricity Regulatory Commission (APERC),” he said. In an attempt to spread the brewing right crisis in Andhra Pradesh, which could derail India`s clean energy, Union Minister Raj Kumar Singh had written to the government insinuating the risk of an erosion of investor confidence. The aim is to put an end to the solar and wind PPAs that were set up by the N Chandrababu Naidu government government of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. Following the AP government`s decision to cancel the AAEs, the case was referred to the AP High Court (APHC). In most other cases, it is the temptation for the dying to buy cheaper electricity from newer solar and wind power that has put many old projects in a difficult situation.
