Power Distribution Franchisee

Distribution Franchisee (or Distribution Power Franchisee or Power Distribution Franchisee or Power Franchisee or DF) is an emerging PPP model in Indian Distribution power sector. While it is not complete privatization, it is a step to leverage best corporate practices, cut down high utility losses (national average ATC of 35+%), realise predictable cash flows directly from end-consumers and hence offers an attractive big market.

With modernization of utility infrastructure (IT automation, Measurements and Monitoring) under Government of India’s R-APDRP program, the scale-up of Distrbution Franchisee business stands at market inflection point. Further integration of the existing Distribution Franchisee model with Distributed Generation (DGBDF – Distributed Generation Based Distribution Franchisee) and consumer demand management would be advent of India into Smart Distribution or smart grid.
