Karnataka Proposes Reduction in BESCOM’S RPO Target from 13% to 12%

The Karnataka Electricity Regulatory Commission (KERC) has proposed changes to the regulations passed in 2011 with regards to the procurement of energy from renewable sources.

Under Renewable Purchase Obligation (RPO), the Bangalore Electricity Supply Company Limited (BESCOM) must purchase minimum of 12 percent of its total energy procurement from renewable sources of energy. The slab has been reduced by 1 percent, with the earlier RPO being set at 13 percent.
