Tata Power Delhi Distribution Ltd (Tata Power-DDL), a power utility that supplies electricity in North Delhi and Northwest Delhi, today announced that it has fulfilled its Renewable Purchase Obligation (RPO) for the third consecutive year.
The company sourced 2,600 million units of green power in FY 2022-23 from various sources of renewable energy, including solar, wind, and hydro. Renewable power constituted more than 26% of total units sold to consumers by the company in its operational area.
Under the RPO mandate, Discoms must 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 the national capital, the Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC) has fixed the RPO Obligation at 21.35% for FY 2022-23.
Tata Power-DDL met its RPO compliance in FY 2021-22 and FY 2020-21 too by sourcing 2,500 and 2,050 million units of green energy, respectively.
