kamuthi solar project

The Tamil Nadu Electricity Regulatory Commission (TNERC) has rejected petitions from three Adani subsidiaries regarding implementation of must-run status of solar projects in Tamil Nadu.

Kamuthi Renewable Energy, Ramnad Solar Power, and Adani Green Energy (Tamil Nadu) Ltd., had petitioned against Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Company (TANGEDCO), Tamil Nadu State Load Dispatch Centre (TNSLDC), Tamil Nadu Transmission Corporation Limited (TANTRANSCO) and the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE).

The petition was in relation to curtailment of power from Adani solar projects. The TNERC rejected the petition as it found that the issue of “MUST RUN” status requires formal adjudication and not exercise of regulatory jurisdiction.

The TNERC has directed the petitioners to file the petition as a dispute resolution petition (DRP) to take the matter forward.

Mercom previously reported, the Appellate Tribunal for Electricity (APTEL) directed the Chairperson of the TNERC to hear Adani Group’s plea over solar power curtailment issues faced by the company in Tamil Nadu.
