In what can be termed as a significant change in its earlier stance, Andhra Pradesh government has told in the high court it has realized that renewable power contracts with developers cannot be terminated and was embarrassed by its move towards this, but said power purchase agreements need to be renegotiated.
The Government earlier insisted that wind and solar energy plants to revise their tariff to Rs 2.43 per unit and Rs 2.44 per unit, respectively, with retrospective effect. Now, the government said it is open to negotiations about the Tariff rates. The government says that the electricity distribution companies in the state will go bust if the energy department continues to pay for wind and solar power at current tariffs.
The companies, however, say any negotiations in the signed PPAs will have an adverse effect on their balance sheets. They demanded the court to direct adherence to all terms of the power purchase agreements, including payment to the companies.
The next hearing of the case will take place on September 18 for rejoinder submissions by companies.Don't MissOperation GoldFish Review - Operation FailsBOTTOM LINE Operation Fails OUR RATING 1.75/5 CENSOR 'U/A'Certified, 2 hrs 07 mins What Is...Don't MissRaju Gari Gadhi 3 Review - All About One Hilarious BlockBOTTOM LINE All About One Hilarious Block OUR RATING 2.25/5 CENSOR 'U/A' Certified, 2 hrs...Don't MissOnce Popular Actress in Vulgar TrailerThe trailer of 'Srimathi 21 F' came out and it's shocking to see once popular...Don't MissRajasekhar Walks out of Potential Remake?If the latest reports are to be believed, Rajasekhar who agreed to the Telugu remake...Don't MissFans Startled as the News About Chiru152 Turns FakeJust after the successful delivery of Sye Raa, the most exciting come back of Chiranjeevi,...
