Time of the day variation in volume and price of electricity transacted through bilateral trader transactions is shown in Figure-20. The volume of the traders represents inter-state transaction volume i.e. excluding banking transaction volume. Time of the day variation in volume is shown during RTC (Round the Clock), Peak period and OTP (other than RTC & Peak period). Of the total volume, 93.24% was transacted during RTC followed by 5.97% during OTP and 0.79% during peak period. It can be observed from the figure that there is hardly any volume transacted during peak period. It can also be observed that the price during peak period is high (Rs 4.97/kWh), as expected, when compared with the price during RTC and OTP.
