With power consumers in the State having put up with a steady rise in electricity tariffs over the past few years, private players generating clean energy are seeing a sizeable number of companies come forward to buy power from them. What these companies stand to gain is not just the satisfaction of using clean energy, but also monetary savings. “In Karnataka, the charges for solar power through open access would range from Rs. 5.50 to Rs. 6, depending on the contract duration and other terms. There is no investment required from the customer, as the entire investment is made by the developer,” said Andrew Hines, Business Development Head, South, CleanMax Solar Private Limited.
