1. Recommendation:

1. Install meters of electricity supplied from the SHP plants

Electricity generated at the SHP plants is metered at electricity meters integrated in control panels. However, part of the electricity generated is used for frequency control through heating of water in ballast water tanks. The Project should install electricity meters at SHP plants outlets to meter net electricity supplied to customers for both, future monitoring and verification of metered electricity consumption for billing.
