Tamil Nadu’s state-owned electricity generation and distribution company, Tangedco, wants to do away with the distinction between High Tension (HT) and Low Tension (LT) consumers for rooftop solar projects.

Industry insiders, such as Manu Karan, Vice President - Business Development at CleanMax, a solar energy company, point out that the price discovered in solar auctions (around INR 2.8 a kWhr) is for large capacity, utility-scale projects. They are typically projects of the size of 100 MW to 500 MW. The basis of pricing of electricity from these plants cannot be the same as for rooftop solar, which at best maybe 2 MW.
