Power projects may get their very own ‘Aadhaar’ identity
NEW DELHI: The government is considering an Aadhaar-like unique identification for all the power projects in the country to know the right amount of electricity generation and consumption, electricity requirement, demand-supply patterns, and transmission system requirements. An online registry is proposed for the power producers, which include operators of all thermal, hydro, renewable and captive plants.
The government is weighing taking stringent actions against non-compliance by power plant developers to ensure complete registration of power projects, a government official said. The registry will also help new power plants secure regulatory clearances, he said.
