The project developers shall sell all the energy generated from the projects to PSPCL/Licensee at the tariff arrived after competitive bidding. Projects under REC mechanism may be allocated through competitive bidding based on the percentage share of REC price. The NRSE projects shall be provided tariff for sale of power as per PSERC RE tariff orders. No parallel operation charges shall be levied on NRSE projects. The banking facility for the power generated shall be allowed for a period of one year. The Punjab State Power Company Ltd /LICENSEE/PSTCL will undertake to transmit/wheel the surplus power through its grid, and make it available to the producer for captive use in the same company units located in the State at a uniform wheeling charge of 2% of the energy fed to the grid.
