Tariff Proposal of CESU

The licensee requests the Hon’ble Commission to accept the proposal of ARR and bridge the revenue gap through combination of

  • grant/subsidy from the state govt.,

Proposed Tariff Rationalisation Measures

  • To consider actual AT&C loss in FY 2009-10 as base level and also Abraham Committee recommendation of percentage reduction for setting of AT &C loss.

Analysis of arr tariff proposal of cesu for fy 2011 12

Analysis of ARR by Consumer Counsel


Analysis of arr tariff proposal of cesu for fy 2011 12

Observation:

27% is the distribution cost of proposed ARR


Revenue gap of cesu for fy 2011 12 in rs cr

Revenue GAP of CESU for FY 2011-12 (in Rs Cr)


Annual revenue requirement cesu

Annual Revenue Requirement CESU

Observation:

-CESU has proposed 56% hike in ARR for 2011-12


Arr cost component power purchase cost

ARR Cost Component-Power Purchase Cost

  • Issues:

  • Utilization of proposed power

  • Higher demand forecasts

  • Higher Distribution Loss

  • Lower Collection Efficiency

  • Higher AT & C Loss

  • Higher loss in LT and HT network


Utilization of proposed purchased power

Utilization of Proposed Purchased Power

Observation:

- 35% power purchased is loss and actual sale is 65%


Demand forecasting in mu

Demand Forecasting (In MU)

Observation: Utilities demand forecast is on higher side. This will result in higher power purchase cost in ARR and corresponding impact on consumers

Submission : Excess power purchase cost is mainly due to excess loss at LT level. Utilities should be directed to drastically reduce the LT loss level.


Distribution loss

Distribution Loss (%)

  • Observation :

  • There is huge gap in projected (35.59%) and approved (24%) distribution loss. Further, trend of actual distribution loss is increasing.

  • Submission:

  • Loss of revenue realization / higher energy purchase due to (10.59%, 843.85 MU, 191.55 Cr) higher distribution loss should not be allowed to passed on to consumer.


Collection efficiency

Collection Efficiency (%)

  • Observation:

  • Collection efficiency proposed is in line with targets approved in BP.

  • LT collection efficiency up to Sept 09 (Actual) is 96%.

  • Submission:

  • Nominal DPS to LT consumers if allowed could help to improve the collection efficiency.


At c loss

AT & C Loss (%)

  • Observation:

  • Licensee has proposed 35.14% AT &C Loss

  • 100% Metering covered till Sept 2009 out of which 87% meters are in working condition. .

  • Low Agriculture Consumption.

  • This implies that the reason for higher AT&C loses could be

  • Lower HT to LT ratio.

  • Poor Power factor

  • Aged transmission lines and poor jointing

  • Less energy Audits

  • Faulty meters and metering

  • Higher thefts


Distribution loss excluding eht consumption

Distribution Loss excluding EHT consumption

Observation: Distribution loss in HT and LT level is much higher than the overall distribution loss (taking together LT, HT and EHT consumption) and approved distribution loss in BP.

Submission: Utility needs to explore various measures to reduce LT and HT distribution loss. Further, faulty metering and power theft needs to be drastically reduced with the help of dedicated flying squad and energy police stations. Such energy police stations directly controlled by senior police officer attached to energy department could improve the efficiency of energy police station.


Arr cost component employee cost

ARR cost component – Employee Cost

Observation:

The utility has proposed the Employee cost of Rs 329.42 Cr in ARR with 47.31% hike from the earlier FY 2010-11


Arr cost component a g cost

ARR cost component – A&G Cost

Observation:

  • Utility has proposed A&G expenses of Rs. 61.28 Cr for FY 2011-12 which are 70.89% higher than that of approved expenses for FY 2010-11.

Submission:

Most of the A&G expenses projected by the utility are based on 7% hike from the current year in line with LTTS order. Further, utility has proposed higher expenses under the heads Rent rate and Taxes, legal expenses, consultancy charges, technical fees, advertisement, inspection fees, franchisee expenses, group insurance, special police stations, SAP, AMR etc without any detailed supporting plan and breakup of cost components. These expenses shall not be allowed to pass through in the ARR.


Arr cost component r m

ARR cost component – R&M

Observation:

Utility has proposed Rs. 62.55 Cr as R&M expenses. These expenses were projected as 5.4% of the opening GFA. (Rs. 1158.25 Cr. at the beginning of FY-2011-12)

Submission:

Utilities GFA approved by commission as on 31.03.2010 were 855.35Cr. Utility has projected the GFA as Rs. 1158.25 Cr. at the beginning of ensuring year. Which seems to be on higher side. Therefore Hon. Commission should consider the new additional GFA (during FY 10-11) over and above approved GFA of Rs. 855.35 and equivalent R&M be allowed to pass through in the ARR.


Arr cost component interest financial charges

ARR cost component-Interest & Financial Charges

Observation:

Utility has proposed Rs 97.43 Cr as net interest charges in the ARR. This includes the major component of interest on world bank loan Rs. 79.38 Cr.

Submission:

Proposed interest charges should be reviewed with actual interest payments during FY 10-11.


Arr cost component provision for bad debt

ARR cost component – Provision for Bad Debt

Observation:

Utility has proposed Rs 17.86 Cr as provision for Bad Debt by considering 99% collection efficiency as against 99% approved in BP.

Submission:

Provision of bad dept 1% of revenue from sale of power is in line with the collection efficiency targets approved in BP.


Arr cost component roe

ARR cost component-RoE

Observation:

As proposed equity capital is constant for the current and ensuring year. There is no equity capital infusion. Hence the Return on Equity should remain same as that of approved for FY 2010-11.

Submission:

Licensee has proposed Rs 11.64 Cr as RoE which is same as that of last years approved RoE which may be accepted.

Tariff proposal – Other Issues


Analysis of arr tariff proposal of cesu for fy 2011 12

Growth in LT consumers

  • Observation:

  • About 50 % of energy is proposed to be sold to LT consumers.

  • Year on Year growth in LT consumers is 22%

  • Minor change in LT tariff has considerable impact on ARR.

  • As the LT consumer base is increasing there is likely possibility of further reduction of collection efficiency

  • This will increase pressure of cross subsidy on HT and EHT consumers.


Analysis of arr tariff proposal of cesu for fy 2011 12

Growth in Kutir Jyoti / BPL consumers

  • Observation:

  • The growth of BPL consumers is increasing due to GoI / GoO rural electrification schemes : growth in FY 2010-11 ( 1415%) & anticipated in FY 2011-12 ( ??? % ) as per submission in ARR.

  • It is predicted that the cumulative BPL consumer in Orissa will raise to 40 lakh by end of 2011-12 , accordingly the BPL consumers in CESUs area will further increase .

  • Submission:

  • In above situation , it will be difficult to maintain the EHT , HT & LT tariff so as to keep the cross subsidy within (+ / - ) 20% of average cost of supply.

  • The subsidized BPL tariff should be strictly made applicable to the consumer having monthly energy consumption of 30 units .

  • The OERC may recommend GoO to give upfront subsidy to DISCOM to cater the BPL consumer in the state.


Submission of consumer counsel

Submission of Consumer Counsel

  • CESUs projection of purchase forecasts are on higher side due to higher losses at HT and LT level. Cost of power of Rs 191.55 Cr due to higher distribution loss should not be allowed to pass through in ARR.

  • Nominal DPS to LT consumers if allowed could help to improve the collection efficiency.

  • The Utility has not taken any step to reduce distribution loss in the line of recommendations of the Kanungo Committee and OERC. Utility needs to explore various measures to reduce LT and HT distribution loss. Faulty metering and power theft needs to be drastically reduced with the help of dedicated flying squad and energy police stations. Such energy police stations if directly controlled by senior police officer attached to energy department could improve the efficiency police station.

  • Higher A&G expenses should not be allowed to pass through in the ARR.

  • Higher R&M should not be allowed to pass through in the ARR.

  • Licensee should make effort to collect arrears in order to reduce deficit.

  • ARR can be reduced by increasing collection efficiency, reducing losses and measures suggested by consumer counsel in the submission..

  • Hon. Commission may kindly consider all above facts and decide the retail tariff in the best interest of all category of consumers.
