The Cabinet Minister for Power, New & Renewable Energy, RK Singh has inaugurated the REC Ltd’s new net-zero solar-powered Corporate Office at Gurugram, Harayana.

The new state-of-the-art futuristic Corporate Office was inaugurated on the occasion of 52nd foundation Day of REC, in the presence of Minister of State for Power and Heavy Industries Krishan Pal Gurjar, Secretary (Power) Alok Kumar, CMD - REC Ltd Sanjay Malhotra and key officials of the Ministry of Power and REC.

The new office, spread over 4.2 acres, is a bioclimatic building boasting of a plaza and a 400-seat auditorium. It is a net-zero building powered by its own 1 MW rooftop solar plant, and has been awarded by GRIHA summit (Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment) for Integrated Water Management and Energy Management.

As part of the ongoing Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav, to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of Indian Independence, the Ministers also released a report on Key Regulatory Parameters of Power Utilities.

The report captures key regulatory information of Discoms apart from state-owned transmission and generation utilities. It will facilitate meaningful comparison of their performance and bring forth actionable insights for relevant power sector stakeholders, including policy makers and regulators.

Benchmarking and comparative assessment of the key regulatory parameters will also provide a comprehensive overview of how the power utilities are faring and the corrective measures required to be undertaken.

The event also saw the release of a booklet on the Achievements of the Government’s Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Gram Jyoti Yojana (DDUGJY) scheme and a compendium on REC’s CSR initiatives by the dignitaries.

Speaking on the occasion, Union Minister congratulated REC on its 52nd Foundation Day and said, “It has been a glorious journey which REC can be proud of…REC recently completed the task of connecting every village and hamlet in record time, and of transforming the power sector.”

The Minister of State for Power added, “through its extensive network of 22 offices across India, REC has been doing the essential work of financing the development of the distribution, transmission, generation and renewable energy sectors. Under the DDUGJY scheme, the country has achieved 100% electrification of villages. It was a challenging task - electrifying 2.81 crore households in record time. REC deserves to be congratulated for it.”

Talking about the report he commented, “the Report on Key Regulatory Parameters of Power Utilities released by REC is a unique initiative to provide a comprehensive collection of performance parameters for power utilities and insights for better decision-making.”

In his speech, the Secretary (Power) remarked, “REC is moving to a new building. This change should mark a new era for REC.”
