The above scheme shall involve transaction of electricity of around 18615 MUs at 85% PLF of 2500 MW and turnover of more than of Rs 7,000 crore (approx.) on yearly basis. NHPC shall receive trading margin from distribution licensee(s)/utilities under Pilot Scheme-II for providing services of aggregator between generator & buyer/utilities as trader.
