 NEW DELHI: From the next financial year, power bills will depend on electricity consumed at specified peak and non-peak hours. 


Power discoms BSES Rajdhani, BSES Yamuna and Tata Power Delhi have sent their proposals to the Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC) for tariffs and peak/non peak time slots for time of day (ToD) metering that will be implemented from FY 2018-19. 

At present, the ToD time slots are applicable from May to September with peak hours between 1pm to 5pm and 9pm to midnight. The existing non-peak hours are 3am to 9am. This is mandatory for those with a sanctioned load of over 25kW and optional for others (other than domestic). 

The regulator is now in the process of revising these for the new tariff due to be announced next year. Comments will be invited from the public on the revised time slots. The objective of ToD metering is to encourage more people to shift their power consumption to off-peak hours in order to get incentives of reduced tariff and reduce power consumption in peak hours. 

Discoms have sent their revisions alongwith the surcharge they will impose on peak hours and rebates during off-peak hours. For south Delhi discom BSES Rajdhani, peak hours will be 1pm to 6 pm and 7pm to midnight from April to October — the surcharge levied for consuming power in these time slots is Rs 3.20/unit. Rebate of Rs 1.83/unit will be offered for power consumption between 3am to 9am. Then from November to March, peak hours will be 9am to 2pm with a heavy surcharge of Rs 5.75/unit while rebate of Rs 1.60/unit for power consumed between midnight and 7 am in these five winter months. 

East Delhi discom BSES Yamuna has proposed a surcharge of 24% over regular tariffs for power consumed in peak time slots 2pm to 6pm and 10 pm to 1am in summer months of April to October. Similar rebate offered in this period is 19% for power consumed between 3am and 9am. In winter months of November to March, BYPL has proposed a surcharge of a hefty 28% in peak hours of 9am to 1pm and 5 pm to 10pm. Rebate of 16% will be offered between midnight and 5am. 
The third discom, Tata Power Delhi - which supplies power to north and northwest Delhi, proposes that in the months of May to September, consumers will pay more from 1pm to 5pm and 9pm to midnight. Off-peak hours will be from 3am to 9am. In winter months, peak hours will be 7 m to 1pm and 6pm to 10pm while off-peak hours will be from 10 pm to 6am. 

After analysing all the proposals submitted by discoms regarding ToD tariffs, DERC has proposed peak hours of 2pm to 5pm and 10pm to 1am from May to September for all discoms BRPL, Tata Power Delhi and NDMC. Only for BYPL, the time slots will be from May to August. Similarly, off peak hours in these summer months have been proposed to be from 4am to 10am.
