Telangana State Electricity Regulatory Commission (TSERC) have proposed new draft regulations for implementation of Open Access (OA) in the state. It has released a comprehensive set of regulations, covering both green and non-green open access – which is a proactive step towards establishing clear processes. We highlight certain issues that may hamper the smooth implementation of regulations, such as - lack of regulatory clarity over establishing connectivity to the distribution or transmission system for OA, treatment of captive with contracted demand below 100 kW and  potential issues with metering. We emphasise the need for adequate sales migration charges and cost-reflective banking charges.
