In a nutshell, open access is the use of transmission lines or a distribution system by any operator for moving electricity from the point of generation to the point of use.

The Electricity Act, 2003, gives generating companies (including non-conventional energy generators) absolute freedom to sell the electricity they produce to any consumer they wish to reach, whether situated within or outside the state of generation, by using open access.

Facilitative provisions

In order to promote the development of renewable energy (RE) projects, the act mandates the state electricity regulatory commissions (SERCs) to ensure grid connectivity.
