The group of consumers should have at least 26% of the equity in the power plant and has to consume at least 51% of the power produced. The term "captive power purchase" was introduced in the Electricity Rule, 1995.

Then they decide to sell the remaining 49% power to Company X, Y and Z. This makes the whole group part of the group captive power purchase.
