The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy ("MNRE") vide office memorandum dated November 6, 2019 has clarified that the RPO of OE consuming energy from hybrid wind-solar power plants shall be based on the relative proportion of energy contributed by each source and must be calculated based on the ratio of declared capacities of each source in the PPAs. However, if the actual installed capacity of each source is different from that declared in the PPA, then the OE would have the option to choose the proportion of each source based on actual ratios of capacities installed of each source, and not the capacity mentioned in the PPA.
