Higher tariff quoted in latest round of electricity supply auctions

In the latest auction of electricity supply contracts, power plant companies have quoted high tariff rates.

It was expected that a lower tariff will be quoted following changes in auction rules by the Centre, heeding to the demands of power companies.

The power ministry had started the scheme to salvage stressed assets idling due to lack of power purchase agreements (PPA) opportunities.

Fifteen power plants of companies such as JSW Energy, Jaiprakash Associates, Jindal Power, Sembcorp Gayatri and Essar Power bid for securing the three year PPAs with states.

The reverse e-auction was held with a base price of Rs 4.7 per unit. The lowest price discovered during the auction was Rs 4.41 per unit, at which supply bids aggregating to 2,520 MW have been received.

In the current round the tariff was expected to fall with the government agreeing to allow escalation in tariffs and minimum off-take of 85 percent of contracted capacity to the power plants.

The prices quoted are higher against Rs 4.24 per unit discovered in the pilot round of the scheme held in April 2018.

The final tariffs including the transmission charges will cost Rs 4.7-Rs 4.8 per unit to the states.

Jindal Power has quoted a bid for supplying the highest quantity of 515 MW from its two plants in Chhattisgarh at Rs 4.41per unit. Adani Power’s Korba West plant has bid for 295 MW and JSW Energy has committed 290 MW.
