GMR restarts operations at Chattisgarh TPP

GMR Chhattisgarh Energy Limited has resumed operations at its 1,370 MW TPP in Chhattisgarh to supply 500 MW of power to GUVNL under the centre’s tolling policy. The company has signed a short-term contract with GUVNL for the supply of power at a fixed tariff of Rs 2.81 per kWh for eight months. GUVNL had invited bids for the supply of 1,000 MW of power from independent power producers (IPPs) under the tolling policy, as a part of the state government’s plans to reduce the cost of power sourced by state distribution utilities.
