WISE was selected by the Manipur State Power Distribution Company Ltd (MSPDCL) for the preparation of ARR and tariff petition for the coming financial year 2021-22. The team visited MSPDCL headquarters in Imphal and interacted with senior officials there to evolve the normative parameters required for the preparation of the ARR and tariff petition. This interaction was a continuous process.

The WISE team carried out a detailed analysis of the energy sale, distribution loss, power purchase quantum and cost, and other financial parameters, for the preparation of the ARR and tariff petition, which was then submitted to the Joint Electricity Regulatory Commission (JERC) for Manipur and Mizoram. WISE also attended the public hearing organised by JERC in Imphal. During the course of the project, WISE assisted MSPDCL in submitting replies to the queries raised by JERC and other stakeholders. Based on WISE’s efforts, JERC notified the ARR and tariff order for MSPDCL for 2021-22.
