MoP agrees to AP’s request to surrender 125 MW of thermal power

The union ministry of power (MoP) has approved the request of the Andhra Pradesh government to surrender 125 MW of coal-based power allocated to AP discoms from NTPC Limited.

The power was allocated to AP discoms on July 5, 2017 from coal-based stations of NTPC for bundling with solar power under National Solar Mission. Reportedly, the discoms will save Rs 1.91 billion per annum on fixed costs with this decision. The move is in line with the state government’s plans of exploring ways to reduce the power purchase costs.
