The New and Renewable Energy Ministry has asked the states to permit movement of material and engineers to guarantee uninterrupted renewable power generation.

"Power generation (including renewable power generation) is an essential service for securing smooth and uninterrupted power flow across and within states," the ministry said in a notification addressed to concerned authorities of all states. There is a need to ensure uninterrupted power supply in the current scenario of Covid-19 outbreak and nationwide lockdown, it said.

Also allowing permission for staff, vehicles and related workforce to move around, the ministry also asked states for a waiver under Section 144, nationwide lockdown, curfew or any other limitation on a "number of people to gather in locations like sites, substations, transmission lines and towers etc. and other related locations where it may be required for operation and maintenance activities of renewable power generation and associated equipment".

A renewable energy developer said such an explanation that power falls under essential services was essential. "MNRE has done the right thing. Now the asset owner has to take the letter and say that these people have to be given a curfew pass," the person said.
