Offtake risk has become a blanket term that scares investors away from #power sector projects in India. We break it down to understand why that is? 1/n
Offtake risk is the risk posed by the off-taker (also called credit risk, counterparty risk or risk on receivables). In India, the counterparty is almost always a discom or a central government offtaker (SECI/NTPC) buying on behalf of the discoms. 2/n
The power purchase agreement (PPA) is the contract between the power generator and the purchaser (discom/SECI/etc) For RE the PPA mandates that all power generated must be purchased/paid for as per the must run clause. Exceptions are allowed only if there is technical trouble 3/n

Okay tweeple. There is a party going on at a club near my house with loud music and there is no way I can sleep before midnight. So, here is a thread on some key stories I did in 2019 from various parts of the country. Slow, travel, explore, learn & report - my 2019 in four words
I started the year by writing in Deccan Herald (Jan 12, 2019) about the extreme weather forecast for 2019. As the year draws toward an end, the forecast has come true. Will prove that at the end of this thread.
So far, I had only focused only on the southwest #monsoon. This year, I learnt a bit about the northeast monsoon and reported on it, especially warning of the impacts of a deficient NE monsoon 2018 on southern India and drought scenario. (Jan 30, 2019)…

Check out the Virgo sign. Pic taken from the new bridge near Kumbharwada. #Pune #MulaMutha #Monsoon #waterlevels #nadikathi #heavyrains
And here’s the sign itself! Also the 180 degrees view! You can see the blue pillars of the new bridge through the pillars of the middle one.

Amazing #Monsoon stat:
Day before yesterday rainfall deficiency was 43%
Yesterday it was 16% deficient.
But rainfall deficiency of India came down to 42%
Wah re wah
Data of #monsoon rainfall is even more fraudulent on 22nd June
Apparently claims huge above average rain in 7 subdivisions and still 4% deficiency
Despite 4% deficiency nationwide, seasonal rainfall went up
Now 39% less rain only
IMD is saying, Bihar & UP had far too much rain today, Bahut ho Gaya, zaada ho Gaya.
Every year they do this statistical fraud on #monsoon data
Deficiency is now reduced to 38%
Despite 15% shortfall today

As India waits anxiously for the #monsoon to break over a parched subcontinent, here’s a look at the advance and retreat of the 2018 monsoon. #EarthEngine@googleearth⁩ ⁦@EarthOutreach
As the #monsoon clouds drape and dance over the subcontinent (see tweet above), beneath those clouds, an entire parched landmass bursts into life as the rains fall. See for yourself why the monsoon is truly the beating heart of India. #EarthEngine @googleearth @EarthOutreach
@googleearth @EarthOutreach In the pre-#Monsoon half of the year, south India seems to have suffered a greater rainfall deficit this year (i.e., more orange than blue) than the last. Consecutive deficit years for Gujarat and Maharashtra, whereas north India seems marginally better off so far this year.

1⃣ In #Uttarakhand, increasingly warmer winters are making #Rhododendrons bloom earlier than usual; during February-March instead of its usual schedule of March-May.

The season is not the best time for #Rhododendrons, because late winter rains in February-March wash away the blooms, affecting local population dependent on making juice, jams and jellies from the flowers.

Last night, the @starbucks location on 107th Ave & Grand in Sun City, AZ kicked out a group of mamas (& a baby!) during the intense #monsoon storm. Us BEGGING them to give us a few mins to compose a safe plan for alternative shelter as it was unsafe to be out.
The store was 2 hours from closing time but had lost power due to the severity of the storm. Interior lights were on and we were a small-ish group of paying customers. All mamas and even one baby, very quietly discussing things over drinks we had just purchased.
Just before the power went out, we had checked the radar and saw that the storm was huge and the eye was above us. Trees were down, lighting was striking & started fires in the area, 75mps winds, sideways rain, little visibility. It was tornado-like.
