The capacity charges shall consist of interest on outstanding loans, depreciation / advance against depreciation and leasing charges in case the company has taken assets on lease. Full capacity charges shall be recoverable if the plant availability level equals or exceeds the normative availability level of 90%. In case the Plant Availability less than 90% the capacity charges shall be reduced on pro-rata basis. The payment on account of depreciation and advance against depreciation during the period when the debt is outstanding as per the Approved Financial Package, will be equal to the amount of principal required to be paid in the relevant tariff period / tariff year subject to maximum of 1/12 of the loan components of the capital cost as per the Approved Financial Package.

Out of the amount so paid, amount worked out @ 4.3% of the capital cost for each full period of 12 months shall be treated as the payment on account of depreciation and the balance as advance against depreciation. After the debt redemption period, the advance against depreciation shall be adjusted against depreciation payable by the HPSEB for the future period at a rate per annum of 4.3% of the capital cost. No further payment on account of depreciation shall be made until the entire amount of advance against depreciation is fully adjusted.

The projections for the annual capacity charges are required to be submitted to HPSEB by us before the beginning of a tariff period / year. The annual capacity charges divided by 12 shall determine monthly capacity charges payable irrespective of generation. However, on a Plant Availability of less than 90% pro-rata deduction is envisaged.

The Primary energy charge shall consist of:

- Operation and maintenance charge at the rate of 1.25% p.a. of the capital cost as per AFP escalated at the rate of 6% (compounded annually) subsequent to the initial tariff year for first ten tariff years and thereafter escalated based on weighted average index of wholesale prices and consumer prices.

- Return on equity at the rate of 16% p.a. of the equity component of the capital cost as per Approved Financial Package

- Interest on working capital at the State Bank of India lending rate as applicable from time to time for the secured loans on the amount of working capital computed in terms of the provisions.

The Primary Energy charges estimated for the tariff period are to be divided by the Design Energy for the period to arrive at a unit rate of energy charges, which will be multiplied by energy generated during a month to ascertain monthly payments.

The charges for the saleable secondary energy for any tariff year shall not exceed 10% return on equity. The per unit rate for saleable Secondary Energy shall be calculated by dividing 10% return on equity with normative saleable secondary energy amounting to 155 MU at the Interconnection Point.

The saleable energy delivered at the Interconnection Point (after excluding Infirm Energy) to the extent net saleable energy shall be treated as saleable energy. Any energy in excess of the same shall be treated as net saleable Secondary Energy during the tariff year / tariff period.

In case the plant availability level in a tariff year, as determined in accordance with the terms of the PPA, exceeds the normative level of 90%, the company shall be entitled to an incentive at the rate of 0.35% of equity component of the capital cost as per the approved financial package for each percent increase in plant availability above 90% normative level during the year when plant availability is more than 90%. The amount of this incentive payable for any tariff year shall not exceed 2% return on equity.

The tax on income will be payable as an expense to the company on submission of a tax bill to the HPSEB at least 40 days prior to the required date of payment of such tax / advance tax. The tax liability payable by the HPSEB shall in no circumstances be more than the income tax actually payable by the company.

The extra rupee liability on account of foreign exchange variation towards interest payment and loan repayment incurred in the relevant year, shall be payable subject to the specified limits as per the firm financial package.

• The Company and HPSEB are required to install one set of meters each named as main meters and check meters respectively at the Interconnection Facilities. On the first day of every month, in the presence of representatives of both, the Company and HPSEB, readings for the supplies at interconnection point shall be taken, which will be jointly signed by both the parties. Based on these readings, we shall raise bills on HPSEB.

• The Company shall prepare a monthly bill in the first week of the month for the previous month and submit to HPSEB with meter reading jointly signed by us and HPSEB. The monthly bill shall include ‘Fixed monthly capacity charges, primary energy charges and secondary energy charges’. The Company is required to submit supplementary bills for reimbursement of income tax along with the monthly bill for the tax paid during previous month. The PPA further prescribes that the company shall submit supplementary bill, indicating the difference of foreign exchange variation on interest on foreign debt and foreign loan repayment on actual basis.

• A jointly reconciled statement is also required to be submitted by us for annual payment / adjustment for capacity charges, energy charges and incentives, on annual basis.

• For payment of the monthly bills for each billing month within seven (7) days from the presentation of the monthly bill, the HPSEB shall be given rebate at the rate of two point five percent (2.5%) of the amount billed and paid.

• To the extent the HPSEB makes payment after 7 days but within thirty (30) days from the presentation of the bill the HPSEB shall be entitled to a discount of one percent (1%) of the amount so billed by us.

• In case of supplementary bills also, we shall allow rebate at the above rates for payments within 7 days and within thirty five (35) days from the presentation of the supplementary bill to the HPSEB.

• The payment of monthly bills shall be made by HPSEB through a confirmed, irrevocable, without recourse to the drawer, revolving LC. The amount of LC shall be for 1.5 times of one month’s billing in respect of (a) capacity charges for one month billing, (b) energy charges for saleable design energy for the month of September at applicable tariff for the year, or for the peak monthly bill on half yearly basis. The LC can be assigned to the Financial Institutions/ Lenders for the purpose of getting financial assistance.

• The payments by HPSEB to us shall be effected through an escrow mechanism for which HPSEB shall open an escrow account with a scheduled bank, to be maintained by the bank as an agent for us, which shall be pledged as security to us and our lenders.

• The payment obligations of HPSEB are further guaranteed by the GoHP, which can be invoked in case HPSEB does not make payment of a undisputed bill within two months after giving a notice of at least 15 days.

• Notwithstanding any dispute as to all or any portion of monthly bill/supplementary bill submitted by us to the HPSEB, the HPSEB shall pay the undisputed amount of the bill by the due date, provided that the amount of the bills is based on joint meter reading and applicable tariff.

• In case of dispute on any of the bills, the HPSEB shall notify us of any disputed amount within 15 days of receipt of bill, and we shall rectify the error /shortcoming or otherwise notify its rejection of the disputes amount, with reasons, within 5 days of the reference by the HPSEB. In case of persistence of a dispute the provisions of the PPA for resolution of disputes shall be applicable. If the resolution of any dispute requires us or the HPSEB to reimburse to HPSEB or the Company, the amount to be reimbursed shall bear interest, for the number of days from the date of payment, by the HPSEB or by us upto the date of reimbursement, at a rate equal to the rate being charged from time to time by State Bank of India for 90 days unsecured loans from the commercial borrowers plus three (3) percent plus interest tax per annum.

• The HPSEB shall have the option exercisable at any time within the period beginning 540 days before and ending 180 days before the expiry date of the Agreement (or before the expiry of extension if any) to purchase the Power Plant on the expiry date of the agreement (or of extension period if any) in accordance with terms of the Agreement, where upon, subject to buy out price provisions, neither party shall have any liability to other party in relation to the project.

• We shall effect and maintain during the construction period as well as during the operation period the insurances as envisaged in the PPA.

The notice period in case of defaults shall be 120 days. The notice period(s) can however be extended with mutual Agreement.
