No energy development cess is to be paid on the power produced by renewable energy projects for ten (10) years beginning with the COD. Each renewable energy developer is eligible for the 50% reimbursement on stamp duty on the purchase of private land for the project.

All RE power projects will have access to wheeling through MPPTCL or MP Discoms, as appropriate, at the wheeling rates set by MPERC. 50% of the wheeling fee shall be waived, or as the Madhya Pradesh Electricity Regulatory Commission may from time to time allow. This exemption is valid after COD for five years.

Incentive for Renewable Energy Storage Project

Renewable energy-based projects utilising any commercially available energy storage technology will be eligible for an extra incentive. The renewable energy power project must have a minimum storage capacity of “X/10” MWh to be eligible for this additional incentive. 

Storage-related renewable energy projects will not be required to pay the full 20% of registration and facilitation fees. For ten years after project commissioning, renewable energy projects incorporating storage are exempt from paying electricity duty if they are used to supply power to distribution licensees, outside parties, or for captive use. Developers that buy private land for the project are entitled to a 15% stamp duty refund.
