ISLAMABAD: The Sarhad Rural Support Programme (SRSP) has submitted an application to the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) for a power generation licence for its 2MW hydropower project.
The 2MW Birmogh Golain Hydropower project has been designed with an intake system to divert the required volume of water discharge.
The SRSP has set up the project at an estimated cost of Rs342.11 million at village Birmogh District Chitral K-P. Peshawar Electric Supply Company (Pesco) has the exclusive licence to engage in the distribution service and to make sales of electric power to consumers in its service territory and its concession territory.
Pesco has issued its no objection certificate (NOC) for power evacuation from SRSP. However, the aforesaid NOC is conditional upon; inter alia, generation license from Nepra, signing of Power Purchase Agreement with CPPA-G.
