MNRE grants time extension in commissioning of renewable energy projects

The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has notified a timeline extension in the scheduled commissioning date (SCoD) of renewable energy projects considering disruption due to the second wave of COVID-19.

As per the order, renewable energy projects being implemented through implementing agencies designated by the MNRE having their SCoD on or after April 1, 2021 would be eligible to claim time-extension for completion of their project activities provided that such time-extensions are not used as a ground for claiming termination of power purchase agreement (PPA) or for claiming any increase in the project cost. The actual  quantum  of  time-extension  will   be  decided  in  due  course  depending  on  the  COVID-19  related developments that take place in the coming weeks.
