An ongoing project, WISE was engaged by the Manipur State Power Distribution Company Ltd (MSPDCL)—the state distribution utility—for the preparation of ARR and tariff petition for the financial year 2022-23.
During the study period, the team visited MSPDCL headquarters in Imphal and interacted with senior officials to evolve the technical and financial parameters required for the preparation of the ARR and tariff petition. A data format was shared with MSPDCL for required inputs from them. The interaction was a continuous process.
Based on the data provided by MSPDCL, the WISE team carried out a detailed analysis of the energy sale, distribution loss, power purchase quantum, and cost, and other financial parameters, for preparation of the ARR and tariff petition for 2022-23, along with limited true-up for 2020-21 and annual performance review for 2021-22.
The analysis was presented before MSPDCL for comments. After receiving comments, the petition was reviewed, finalised and submitted to the Joint Electricity Regulatory Commission (JERC) of 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 2022-23.
