MoP extends transmission charges waiver for RE projects till 2025

The Ministry of Power (MoP) has announced an extension for waiver on inter-state transmission charges for renewable energy (RE) generation projects.

Now, the waiver on solar and wind generation projects will be available till June 30, 2025 as compared to June 30, 2023 earlier. The waiver will also be applicable for hydro pumped storage plant (PSP) and battery energy storage system (BESS) if 70 per cent of the electricity produced from these units is generated from solar and wind sources. The order allows waiver of transmission charges for RE trade in the green day ahead market (as part of the integrated day-ahead market) in future.
