BYPL signs an agreement to source 100 Mw wind power

Power discom BYPL has signed an agreement to source 100 Mw wind power that will help meet its renewable power obligations, the company said in a statement on Wednesday.

The power is expected to be available to the discom from the third week of November 2019, for a period of 25 years, and will be available at a competitive tariff of Rs 2.52 per unit, a BSES spokesperson said.

With this agreement, the two BSES discoms in Delhi will pool in 400 Mw of wind power, he said.

Earlier, BSES Rajdhani Power Limited (BRPL) had signed an agreement for 250 Mw wind power and BSES Yamuna Power Limited (BYPL) for 50 Mw.

Out of the 400 Mw wind power, the discoms will start receiving 100 Mw from November this year, and the remaining 300 Mw will be available from November 2019, he said.

This is not only one of the “lowest tariff” for wind power, but is also priced substantially lower than the average cost of long-term power purchasing agreements which are above Rs 4.5 per unit, the spokesperson said.
