KSEBKerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) has projected an aggregate revenue requirement (ARR) of Rs 7,503.98 crore and expected revenue from charges (ERC) of Rs 5,284.38 crore for 2010-2011 leaving a revenue gap of Rs 2,219.60 crore. The KSEB has requested the State Electricity Regulatory Commission to impose 46 paise per unit as thermal surcharge. KSEB had recently petitioned the Commission that surcharge should be introduced to help it recover Rs 311.52 crore incurred on generation and power purchase up to September 2009.

Of the Expected revenue from charges(ERC) Rs 4,867.25 crore is income from tariff and Rs 417.13 crore is nonincome tariff from a variety of sources such as meter rent, recovery of power theft and penalties. KSEB expects to add five lakh new consumers during 2010-2011 which will see a surge in demand for electricity. Anticipating a normal monsoon, KSEB expects to generate 6,953.16 million units from its hydel stations and purchase wind energy to the tune of 61.05 million units.

Submitting the ARR and ERC application for the approval of the Regulatory Commission, the KSEB has revised its estimates for 2009- 2010. For 2009-2010, it re-estimates the ARR and ERC respectively as Rs 6,881.25 crore and Rs 4,952.59 crore leaving a gap of Rs 1,928.66 crore.

The revision is attributed to the increase in costs of power generation and power purchase. The original gap calculated for 2009-10 was Rs 1,099.28. In 2010-11, the KSEB expects heavy power purchases from outside to meet the demand.

Delay in the commissioning of NLC Expansion Stage-II and Unit-I of the Koodankulam Nuclear Power Project, from where KSEB was to have received 70 MW and 266 MW respectively, could see the power utility depending on traders and the power exchange to meet the excess demand.

It hopes to cut down transmission losses to 16.78 percent, a reduction of 0.92 over the previous fiscal. Next fiscal the power utility hopes to replace eight lakh faulty meters. The target for 2009-10 was 7.44 lakh of which 3.78 lakh were replaced by September 2009. The target will be achieved by this March, KSEB said.

KSEB has earmarked a total outlay of Rs 4 crore for the training of personnel, Rs 30 lakh on research and development and Rs 6.54 crore on developing IT-enabled services.
