Pune first in country to reduce load-shedding

Facilitate sale-purchase of power not on 'day ahead' but on 'week and month' ahead:

If the Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) permits the Indian Energy Exchange (IEX) to facilitate sale-purchase of power on week and month ahead basis, there are hopes that the Pune model of zero load-shedding will have one more avenue to secure additional power.

Since April 2008, Tata Power has been appointed as the franchise to procure additional power required by Pune to prevent load-shedding. During April/May 2008, Tata Power procured power with firm contracts. But, since October 1, the company has been buying power from IEX on day ahead basis and, due to price and availability constraints in day ahead mechanism, the assured power is not available every day.

Vivek Velankar, founder Sajag Nagrik Manch (SNM) consumer group, has urged people to send their submissions to CERC supporting the IEX petition by November 18. Details about sending submissions can be obtained from www.cercind.gov.in.
