The Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) has issued new guidelines for inter-state transmission charges and losses. The guidelines shed light on the responsibilities of the nodal agencies and the calculation of inter-state transmission charges and losses for solar and wind projects.
These regulations will apply to all designated ISTS customers (DICs), interstate transmission licensees, national regional, and state load dispatch centers, along with regional power committees (RPCs). The ISTS customers include the generating stations, state transmission utilities (STU), distribution licensees, including state electricity boards, electricity departments, and any other entity directly connected to the ISTS.
As per the regulations, the yearly transmission charges will be shared monthly by the DICs per these regulations. The sharing and transmission charges will be based on the commercial information provided by the customers to the implementing agency. The transmission charges for short-term open access will be payable by generating stations and entities located in the state, as per the last published open access regulations, 2008.Source : https://mercomindia.com/cerc-guidelines-transmission-solar-wind/
