Telangana Commission Eliminates Grid Support Charges for Solar Rooftop


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.
