Note: The input energy has been arrived by grossing up the base energy (3600000 units) by losses at wheeling & transmission losses at relevant voltage level for the consumer. Loss of actual energy has been computed as a difference between the energy arrived by grossing up and the base energy.Base energy = 3600000 units=X.
*Reference: Illustrative case on Open Access on ‘FOR’ website.
**Tariff for an embedded consumer of 5MW at 11 KV (33 KV in some cases).

    I must say this a very good analysis. It would be great if your team can do a simar analysis for solar energy

    You can use the same loss figures and based on your industry experience take real solar energy generation figures in each state
