The Telangana State Electricity Regulatory Commission (TSERC) has declined to enforce grid support charges (GSC) on rooftop solar setups, regardless of whether they are operating with net-metering or gross-metering setups. It was asserted that GSC should exclusively be levied on captive power plants, specifically for the electricity consumed by the co-located load. Furthermore, given that retail supply tariffs have already been established for the fiscal year (FY) 2023-24 and the end of the year is approaching, the commission opted against setting GSC for FY 2023-24. Alternatively, it directed state distribution companies (discoms) to submit a distinct application for GSC determination for FY 2024-25, adhering to its methodology.

Recently, in April 2024, according to the TSERC (Terms and Conditions of Open Access), Regulation, 2024, consumers who have a contracted or sanctioned load of 100 kW or more, including those who aggregate multiple connections to achieve a total of 100 kW within the same electricity division of a power discom, are eligible to obtain power through green energy open access.
