With a view to promote power generation from New and Renewable energy sources, Haryana government has decided to waive off intra-state “Wheeling Charges” on transmission of electricity generated from solar power plants in the state.
This was announced by chief minister Manohar Lal here today.
Wheeling Charges refers to the process of transmission of electricity from one source to another through the transmission lines or grid.
The state government, under Section 108 of Electricity Act 2003, had already approved to request the Haryana Electricity Regulatory Commission (HERC) for waiving off these charges.
This exemption would enable the solar energy sector to transmit power without any charge within the state.
