Bajaj Energy Limited (BEL) is one of the largest private-sector thermal generation firms in Uttar Pradesh. The company holds decades of experience in financing, building, and running thermal power generation facilities. The company has a total gross installed capacity of 2,430MW, comprising 450 MW from five operational plants of 90 MW each, owned and managed by BEL and 1,980 MW from the power plant owned and managed by Lalitpur Power Generation Company Limited (LPGCL). The power plants run by BEL have been fully operational since 2012 and enjoy an active track record of more than six years. The LPGCL power plant has been operational since December 2016.
Bajaj Energy Ltd is one of the largest independent power producers in Uttar Pradesh and is well-positioned to meet the state’s demand for power. The company has a long-term fuel supply agreement with Central Coal Fields Ltd, a subsidiary of Coal India Ltd. The total installed capacity for the BEL Power Plants and the LPGCL Power Plant is contracted for under the long-term PPAs entered into with certain state government-owned procurers through UPPCL.
The dependency is very high on a single customer - Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation Ltd (UPPCL). Currently, LPGCL is involved in disputes with UPPCL with regard to the payment of tariffs. If the matter tilts in favour of UPPCL, then there may be write-offs, which could impact LPGCL’s financials. Due to heavy dependency on Central Coal Fields Ltd for coal, the company could face fuel supply risks. The tariffs are subject to regulatory nods by Uttar Pradesh Electricity Regulatory Commission (UPERC). Therefore, neither BEL nor LPGCL can decide at what rate they can sell the generated power.
