Aftermath of PPAs review: Power Projects in Andhra in a state of quandary

The State government’s resolve to go for review of the Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) has stalled grounding of new power projects proposed to add close to 3,310 MW both in private and government sectors.
 
While the work on 1000 MW solar power project being implemented by the NTPC at Nambulapulakunta near Kadiri in Anantapur district got stalled due to a row over the amount of compensation to be paid to land owners, another 160 MW of Hybrid (100 MW solar + 60 MW wind) project proposed in Ramgiri, also to be grounded by NTPC, seems to be getting delayed due to uncertainty over the PPA. 
 
While 250 MW portion of the 1,000 MW N.P. Kunta project is completed, the work on remaining 750 MW being executed by foreign companies is not progressing at the desired pace.<
