PETITION ON BACKING DOWN ORDERS ON ELECTRICITY GENERATION DISMISSED BY RERC

A petition has been filed by Renew Wind Energy, Ostro Renewables, Mytrah Vayu and CLP Wind Farms against Rajasthan SLDC and Rajasthan Rajya Vidyut Prasaran Nigam Ltd against the unlawful and unpredictable instructions issued by SLDC for backing down of generation of electricity. Wind generation companies argued that SLDC had issued backing down orders in the past giving grid stability as one of the reason. They also pointed out that the backing down orders were random in nature and were given despite providing regular day-ahead forecasts to SLDC

 

To this the SLDC had responded that such orders were given to RE generators only after they had been given to the generators of conventional energy. Also, the reasons for the orders had been duly noted by the SLDC to ensure transparency.

 

The commission held a hearing and after which, it made the decision to dismiss the petition and SLDC has been warned to issue backing down orders to RE generators strictly based on the Grid Code and a record of backing down and its reason shall be maintained.

 

The order can be accessed here.
