Andhra Pradesh Electricity Regulatory Commission


The Andhra Pradesh Electricity Regulatory Commission (APERC) was constituted on March 31, 1999 under the A.P. Electricity Reform Act, 1998. The role of APERC is to improve the functionality of the Power Sector in the state of Andhra Pradesh to make it viable and more importantly to protect the interests of the consumers. The commission issued Licenses to the APTRANSCO, the four Distribution Companies and the nine Rural Electric Cooperatives in the state. Six Tariff Orders have been issued.

APERC has written a letter to Election Commission of India seeking relaxation from model code of conduct for announcement of new tariffs effective from April 1, 2014. The new tariffs once implemented will increase the burden of consumers by Rs. 9339 crore. Mar 13, 2014
