ISTS charges waiver may get extension beyond 2020

The power ministry may consider extending the waiver of inter-state transmission system (ISTS) charges for renewable energy projects beyond 2022.

Earlier in November 2019, the Ministry had extended the ISTS charges waiver to wind and solar energy projects by nine months till December 2022. Under the waiver, all these projects commissioned by December 2022 are eligible for availing exemption of ISTS charges and losses on transmission of electricity for 25 years. Previously, the waiver was for the projects commissioned till March 31, 2022.
