Renewable generation obligation as per revised tariff policy, 2016

The Ministry of Power has notified the applicability of Renewable Generation Obligation (RGO) to firms constructing coal-based thermal power stations from April 2023 onwards. Under this, the companies will have to set up renewable energy projects of 40 per cent capacity of such coal-fired power stations. RGO was introduced in 2016 as an enabling provision in the National Tariff Policy.
