Policy for promoting generation of power through non-conventional energy sources

Title of policy document

Policy for Promoting Generation of Power through Non-Conventional Energy Sources

Nodal agency

Meghalaya Non-Conventional and Rural Energy Development Agency (MNREDA)

Capacity target and period

NA

Offtake arrangement

Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)

Yes

Use for captive

It shall not be necessary for power producer to sell the electricity generated to distribution company (DISCOM) or its successor company. Power producers producing electricity for captive consumption shall also be treated as eligible producers. However, if the third party is a consumer of the DISCOM and needs support of the DISCOM system in case of outage of the power station, then he will have to pay minimum charges as per rules of the DISCOM.

Sale to third party

Grid interfacing

Biomass Power Producer (BPP)

Developer to install the interfacing equipment (transformers, panels, kiosk, protection, metering, high tension lines etc.) as required from the point of generation to the nearest high tension lines. The maintenance of the equipment will also be done by the developer as per the specifications and requirements of the State Government.

If developer requests Power Department for installation and maintenance of the equipment, the producer will pay the entire cost to the latter, at charges decided by the Department.

Two separate meters, one for importing power from the grid and another for exporting power to the grid, will be installed on the High Tension (HT) side by the producers at their cost. The meters and metering boxes will be sealed by the State Transmission Utility (STU).

Wheeling charges

STU to transmit the power generated by the developer on its grid and make it available to him for captive use or to a third party nominated by BPP for sale within the state, at an applicable wheeling charge.
However, the third party will have to be HT consumers of the power unless this condition is relaxed specifically by the DISCOM.

Registration of projects

MNREDA shall facilitate clearances for the projects at the state and central levels; shall facilitate grant of loans and subsidies for renewable energy(RE) projects.

  • BPP has to submit applications for projects and for grid interfacing to MNREDA and
        DISCOM.

  • MNREDA/ State Government to provide clearance within a period of two months from the
        date of submission of application.

  • An agreement will be entered into with the applicant within a period of one month from
       the date of such clearance provided.
  • Time schedule and penalty provisions
