To reduce the peak demand and also to mitigate global warming TANGEDCO decided to implement the BLY scheme in Tamilnadu and intimated their consent to BEE for participation in 2008 itself.
Implementation of the BLY scheme in Tamil Nadu having 13.5million domestic consumers would result in a peak load relief of approx. 500-600 MW.
TANGEDCO initiated the tendering process to engage a CFL Manufacturer/Investor to implement the scheme in Tamilnadu in March 2008. At that time BEE was in the process of developing the PoA for the BLY scheme.
Initially the work for implementing the BLY scheme in 60% areas of Tamil Nadu comprising of 22 Electricity Distribution Circles (EDC) with approx.82 lakhs metered and billed domestic consumers was awarded to M/s.AES India Pvt Ltd, in December 2008.
Since the PoA was not registered, M/s AES India withdrew from implementing the scheme in Tamilnadu. Hence the scheme could not be commenced.
Again re-tendering process was commenced in August 2009 while the BLY PoA was under validation.
Subsequent to several rounds of negotiations the work for BLY scheme in 60% areas of Tamil Nadu comprising of 22 Electricity Distribution Circles (EDC) with approx. 82 lakhs metered domestic consumers was awarded to M/s.Silver Fir Advisors Pvt Ltd, Noida on 30th April 2010.
