NTPC offers to sell power directly to India Inc

NTPC Limited has invited expressions of interest from electricity distribution companies (discoms) and industries to purchase electricity from its spare generation capacity.

This is the first time the company has offered open access power sales to corporations and industrial customers. NTPC typically supplies power to discoms directly under long-term power purchase agreements (PPAs). From being a traditional pure-play electricity generator, NTPC is now offering power purchase portfolio management services for corporate and industrial organisations, indicating its aim to expand into growing industries and markets across the power value chain.
