Power Grid has contended that as per Regulation 15 of the Power Supply Regulations, the transmission licensee is required to decide the quantum and duration of denial of the open access/access in consultation with any of the concerned generating company.
NTPC has raised the issue of locating alternative buyers due to uncertainty due to quantum and period of the regulation, corridor constraints, the possibility of restricted operation of generating station and its impact on the commitment of NTPC make to Government of India and frequent part load operation increasing the risk of machine outages and the disputes by the beneficiaries in payment of NTPC dues.
Under such circumstances, it is practically difficult to resort to regulation of power supply in case of the default of payment to transmission licensees.
CERC has issued notice to NTPC Limited, New Delhi, NHPC Limited, Faridabad, SJVN Limited, New Delhi, NEEPCO Limited, Shillong, THDC India Limited, Rishikesh and Power Supply Operation Company, New Delhi to file their replies by July 26 and petitions shall be heard on August 2.
