UERC to reduce generic tariff of solar power projects in Uttarakhand

The Uttarakhand Electricity Regulatory Commission (UERC) has issued a draft proposal to review the benchmark capital cost and generic tariff for various solar power projects for 2021-22.

The projects include photovoltaic (PV), solar thermal, and grid-interactive rooftop solar and small solar PV projects. UERC has proposed the benchmark capital cost of Rs 32.19 million for solar PV projects and Rs 120 million for solar thermal projects, to be commissioned on or after April 1, 2021. Based on the benchmark capital cost, UERC has determined the gross generic tariff to be applicable for projects to be commissioned in 2021-22 at Rs 4.04 per kWh for solar PV projects and Rs 13.69 per kWh for solar thermal projects. The last date for submission of comments by stakeholders is August 23, 2021.
