Relative DF Attractiveness Matrix for Jharkhand and Mumbra RFPs

Recently, new opportunities have emerged in Jharkhand and Maharashtra in Power Distribution Franchisee. See our earlier blogs on Mumbra (Maharashtra) and Jharkhand:
pManifold's DF Attractiveness Matrix on RFP data provides a quick study on new areas in Jharkhand & Maharashtra and its comparison with old one's like Nagpur, Jalgaon, Aurangabad, MP's 3 regions, etc. A coloring scheme is used for better visualization for favorable Distribution Franchisee parameters across each attributes.

Some of the key factors favoring Jharkhand bids (based on old RFPs):
  • Input Energy in Ranchi and Jamshedpur is highest compared to all previous bids ( Approx 1,400+ MUs per year) 
  • HT load in all 3 regions is next highest after Aurangabad (HT customers number ranging around 300 in each region) 
  • Connected Load (in KWs) is highest in Ranchi, followed by Agra, Aurangabad and Jamshedpur in that order
  • Electricity Sales (LUs) is highest in Jamshedpur, followed by Ranchi, Aurangabad and Agra in that order
  • AT&C loss is highest for Jamshedpur, 4th ranking for Dhanbad and 5th for Ranchi
  • Average Billing Rate (ABR) is amongst the lowest, indicating good potential for improvements (in the range of 3.25 Rs./kWh)  
Revised RFP of Jharkhand will be released on 20th June, 2012. Last date of bid submission is 10th July for all the 3 cities.

Key factors favoring Shil-Mumbra-Kalwa bids (based on old RFP i.e. Dec 2010):
  • Geographical Area is smallest when compared with compared with other areas (Approx 63 Sq. Km.) 
  • Consumer Density (No. of customers per Sq. Km.) is highest, while Connected Load Density is 5th ranking with highest in Aurangabad
  • AT&C loss is highest (54.04%, similar to that of Jamshedpur)  
  • Collection Efficiency is 2nd lowest, indicating good potential for improvements (84%)
  • The distribution licensee, MSEDCL, is the most experienced with highest number of Input based DFs in the country
The complete process of Shil-Mumbra-Kalwa is through e-tendering and RFP can be downloaded from the following site: http://works.mahadiscom.in/eTender/etender. Last date of RFP procurement is 20th June, 2012.
