Though over two and a half years have passed since the Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC)
The Tamil Nadu Electricity Regulatory Commission (TNERC) has put up a draft consultative paper proposing to increase the stateÂ´s share of solar power under the renewable purchase obligation (RPO) from 0.25 per cent to 2 per cent. This means that the state electricity utility will have to buy more solar power than earlier. All states in India have to adhere to RPO norms, which say that a part of the electricity utilityÂ´s power should come from renewable sources.
Greenpeace has released its assessment report on Renewable Purchase Obligation (RPO) titled Powering Ahead on Renewables: Leaders and Laggards', which ranks all the states on their performance in renewable energy supply and calls for revision of RPO mechanism based on equity principle. Bihar takes the lead on a constructive policy on renewable energy, the report said.
