Konaseema Private Power Project to start generation

Government offers compromise price of Rs.2.80 per unit to the private power project


To avoid increase in power cuts, the State Government on Monday gave clearance to the Konaseema power project in East Godavri to start generation after offering to pay a price of Rs.2.80 a unit. Although this project was ready for synchronization long ago after construction, its developers did not indicated the Commercial Operation Date from which it would begin generation, due to a dispute with AP Transco and distribution companies over the price.

Going by the Power Purchase Agreement signed with the developers of Konaseema project, the utilities offered a price of Rs.1.75 a unit but the latter sought Rs.3.56 a unit. Clearing the issue on Monday, the government offered a via media price of Rs.2.80 a unit. The AP Transco officials immediately filed the relevant papers before the AP Electricity Regulatory Commission seeking it green signal to start generation. To begin with, the plant will generate 280MW of power according to available sources.

After reviewing the power supply situation by the Chief Minister, K Rosaiah, Major Irrigation Minister, P Lakshminaryana and AP Transco CMD Ajay Jain expressed the hope that the situation would improve slightly to the next couple of days. Jain said the optimism was based on 500MW which was withdrawn for annual halting and repairs at different power stations and stabilization of operation of the 500 MW new units at Vijayawada. He said tenders had been called to buy power from non-conventional units in the State.
