Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited (Tata Power-DDL), a power utility that supplies electricity to a populace of 7 million in North Delhi and Northwest Delhi, has announced that it has fulfilled Renewable Purchase Obligation (RPO) for the third consecutive year.

The company sourced 2600 million units of green power in FY 2022-23 from various sources of renewable energy, including solar, wind, and hydro, among others. Renewable power constituted more than 26% of total units sold to consumers by the company in its operational area.

Under the Renewable Purchase Obligation mandate, Discoms are mandated by Regulations to source a fixed percentage of their total power purchase from renewable energy sources. Popularly known as ‘RPO’, the percentage varies from state to state and is fixed by the respective electricity regulatory commission of each state. In the case of national capital, Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC) has fixed the RPO Obligation at 21.35% for FY 2022-23. In the preceding two years FY 2021-22 and FY 2020-21, the firm sourced 2500 and 2050 million units of green energy respectively and successfully met its RPO compliance.

“We look at RPO compliance not just as a regulatory practice, but a part of our responsibility towards our consumers and environment. In all our activities, we are embracing sustainable practices and are extensively promoting the usage of green power. We are working in line with the Government’s vision of becoming self-reliant in the field of energy and are targeting to achieve 50% of energy requirements from green sources over the next couple of years,” said Mr. Ganesh Srinivasan, CEO, Tata Power-DDL.

Earlier, a subsidiary of Tata Power and a major renewable energy player in the country, Tata Power Renewable Energy Limited (TPREL) entered into a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited (Tata Power-DDL). The PPA is for a 510 MW hybrid project.
