IREDA’s finances are indirectly linked to that of state electricity distribution companies or discoms. The poor health of state discoms may lead to delays in payments to renewable energy projects that they finance.

Certain discoms that purchase electricity from its borrowers sought revision in the terms of their existing power purchase agreements (PPAs). A downward revision in the tariffs could negatively affect its borrowers, impacting their repayment capabilities.

Its NPAs may increase due to force majeure events, delay in project implementation and more, it said in its risk factors. A lot of its NPAs are concentrated around biomass power and cogeneration, hydro power and wind power projects.

Apart from that, interest rate volatility, inherent risks in renewable projects, vagaries of nature, and highly competitive environment are listed as risk factors in its DRHP.
