NHPC to finalise supply of 2,500 MW for short term
21st Jun 2019

NHPC is all set to finalise in a couple of months the supply 2,500 megawatt (MW) through various coal-based thermal power plants for short term at a tariff of Rs 4.41 per unit discovered in a reverse auction. The company has been appointed as an aggregator by PFC Consultancy through e-tendering for Pilot Scheme-II of the power ministry.

The scheme is to facilitate the procurement of power for three years from coal-based power plants that are already commissioned and do not have power purchase agreements (PPAs). Since a PPA is a prerequisite for getting coal linkage, these plants are under stress.

NHPC is engaged in electric power generation by hydroelectric power plants. The company is also engaged in contracts, project management and consultancy works.
