MoP issues order on wavier of ISTS charges and losses on solar and wind projects commissioned before June 2023

The Ministry of Power (MoP) has waived interstate transmission charges and losses on transmission of the electricity generated from all solar and wind projects commissioned before June 30, 2023.

The order would apply to solar, wind, and hybrid projects with or without storage. The ISTS charges would be waived for 25 years from their date of commissioning for the transmission as well as sale to entities with renewable purchase obligations (RPO). The waiver would apply to solar projects commissioned under the second phase of the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy’s (MNRE) Central Public Sector Undertaking (CPSU) Program and also for solar projects commissioned under SECI’s manufacturing-linked solar tender which was reissued in June 2019.
