It is a crucial month ahead for the waste-to-energy plant proposed at Brahmapuram as a decision on the power tariff to be produced from there will be taken by then.

After a public hearing organised by the Kerala State Electricity Regulatory Commission (KSERC) here on the power tariff in May this year, the commission had called for technical details from the project proponent, GJ Eco power. The proposal is to generate power from the municipal solid waste generated from the city and the neighbouring local bodies and use it for power production.

For the Kochi Corporation, the interest in the project is confined to the management of municipal waste and the viability gap fund.

It had succeeded in making Bharat Petroleum Corporation commit ₹25 crore from its Corporate Social Responsibility fund for the project.

This fund would be used as the viability gap fund. For fixing the provisional tariff, the panel needs to know the details of costing.

As the agency did not produce all the required data as demanded by the commission, it was directed to come up with full data set. The firm is understood to have submitted additional data last week.

Considering the necessity to contain the municipal solid waste, the waste-to-energy plant is considered as a must-run project.
