HPSEBL has filed a petition before Himachal Pradesh Electricity Regulatory Commission (HPERC) seeking APPC determination for FY 2014-15.

The definition of APPC followed by HPERC can be read as –

The weighted average pooled price at which the Distribution Licensee has purchased the electricity including cost of self generation, if any, in the previous year from all the energy suppliers, long-term and short-term, but excluding those based on renewable energy sources, as the case may be.

HPSEB has proposed the APPC as Rs. 2.24 against the current APPC of Rs. 2.17, and has requested to approve the same APPC for FY-14-15 effective from 01 April 2014.

A copy of the proposal can be found by clicking here.
