• DERC seeks opinion on revising charges for migrating customers

    In the draft order issued this week for consumers opting for open access, Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC) has modified various charges. These include subsidy charge, wheeling and transmission charges, and additional surcharge.
    This revision will benefit those who wish to source power from another distribution utility than those operating in their jurisdiction.
    Consumers, discoms and expert bodies have been asked to submit their suggestions on the draft by January 20.
    The draft aims to ensure that low-end consumers do not get burdened with higher tariff on account of high-end consumers opting out of their network. Hence, all those opting out would be paying some charges to the home discom for crosssubsidising domestic consumers.
    The charges payable to Delhi discoms differ as per category and the discom. For Tata Power Delhi, industrial consumers will pay approximately 165 paiseunit, DMRC 136 paiseunit and domestic consu mers 5-11 paiseunit as cross subsidy charges. DeAndre Washington Jersey
